Brut 2016 Vintage Reserve

Our 2016 reflects the natural energy and purity of our North Downs vineyard, the white chalk seam that sits below our vines acting as nature’s best filter, removing any impurities creating a wine that is very soft and clean with a lovely smooth finish.

Tasting Notes

Laura Evans, our resident Master of Wine

Pale straw in colour from the increased amount of Chardonnay with a distinct, fine mousse. Lovely orchard fruits: baked pears with a hint of spice and creaminess on the nose. On the palette it has an abundance of rich, ripe fruit complemented by a hint of brioche and a wonderful, soft mouth feel.

A concentrated full flavour wine, with not too much acidity makes it perfect to pair with a meaty white fish, like monkfish; for the cheese lover: a ripe camembert.

Brut 2016

In 2016 we had a reasonably early bud-burst, but a wet June and July meant yields were below average. Then the sun came out over the summer to October, giving us the first warm Autumn since 2011. Small fruit bunches were a consequence, which in turn produced a very concentrated fruit, perfect for a high quality wine.
