Tasting Note

Rich, yet pale lemon in colour. Notes of citrus fruit and cooked apples are layered with a toasty richness and hint of truffle. Delicate bubbles linger on the palate leading to a beautifully balanced finish. This wine is drinking well now but will undoubtedly, continue to improve with additional bottle age.

Blending and Ageing

The fruit destined for our Classic Cuvée 2014 is harvested by hand and whole-bunch pressed. Partial fermentation in the finest French oak casks, followed by long lees ageing for a minimum of 36 months, gives the wine additional richness, depth and complexity.

Vintage Description

2014 is a vintage that will be looked back on fondly. Budburst was earlier than normal and the weather stayed warm and dry through to the end of June allowing a very even flowering. Some welcome rain arrived in August and it became increasingly clear that we had a large harvest on our hands. Picking started towards the end of September and ran into October with large yields of quality fruit sent to press.

Reviews

“Only the second wine from this estate near Petworth, Sussex, it managed to win a gold medal in this year’s Wine GB awards. Made by the talented Emma Rice of Hattingley in Hampshire. Subtly oak aged and particularly vivid.”                                                        Jancis Robinson, Financial Times Weekend Magazine. 

“This sparkling wine is a delicious blend of 47% Chardonnay with 38% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier that exudes spice, truffle and baked bread aromas followed by a dry (7g/l) but rounded and creamy palate with overtones of caramelised nuts.”      Susie Barrie MW, susieandpeter.com

“Such a warm nose, full of red apple, apricot and brown sugar, with lemon and lemon rind joining the red apple and demerara on the palate. Part of its richness comes from some of the grapes being fermented into wine inside French oak casks.”                     Peter Ranscombe, Scottish Field wine columnist.
