Before you ask, this has nothing to do with royalty (it’d be nice if it did though). It's actually named after Kings Farm which is the farm that makes up the rest of the Hattingley estate. The Kings was originally a bit of an accident, a random barrel was overlooked from the first vintage and no one knew exactly which grapes were inside. As the wine had been inside the barrel for more than twice the length as the other ones, Emma wasn’t sure how it would taste.

As luck would have it, it was fantastic, so Simon kindly gave most of it away to a family member for their wedding! We now make this every year vintage permitting. 

In 2022 we also released our Kings Cuvée Rosé 2015

KINGS CUVÉE 2015

With an attractive pale golden colour and fine mousse, our Kings Cuvée has vibrant citrus zest aromas layered with honey and nuts, and smoothly integrated flavours of brioche, vanilla and creamy oak. Deep and rich, yet with a refreshing palate of bright, crisp acidity and a long, complex finish.

HARVEST

Our 2015 season was a rollercoaster ride from a cold summer to a gloriously sunny autumn. A late start to harvest produced wonderfully crisp acids, intense flavours, and perfect conditions for sparkling wines with enormous ageing potential like our Kings Cuvée, where 100% barrel age provides a soft, rounded finish.

WINEMAKING

A very limited release, the Kings Cuvée is a premium blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. 100% barrel fermented and then aged for seven months in old oak barrels, resulting in a much softer, creamier and spicier wine. After rigorous taste tests, only the top six barrels were selected out of approximately 200 available. Once bottled, the wine spent over six years on lees before disgorging with 6g/L dosage.
