BRUT 2018 VINTAGE RESERVE

Our 2018 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 classic long fresh Squerryes finish.

Tasting Notes

Laura Evans, our resident Master of Wine

"The latest release from the Squerryes stable is the 2018 vintage Brut, which has the hallmark clean bruised apple nose with notes of brioche and pastries. The palate is full and rounded with soft ripe orchard fruits, great concentration and beautiful balance. Classic Squerryes freshness and elegance with underlying richness from an exceptionally warm vintage".

Brut 2018

Started with the 'Beast from the East' leading to very late bud burst and real concern about whether we would have enough ripening time in our high altitude vineyard. Then the year became the viticulturist’s dream with lovely June and July sunshine, just the right amount of rain and beautiful ripe fruit with good berry weights and yields, harvesting earlier than previous years in early October.
