Tasting Notes

Base Vintage:

2019 76%

Reserve Wine:

24%

Background:

All fruit for this wine was sourced from our single site in rural Dorset. The Crawthorne vineyard consists of 12 hectares planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and is located on a sheltered south facing slope at 80-100 metres above sea level. The soil consists of a shallow clay loam, containing flint, over deep Cretaceous chalk.

Vinification:

The grapes for the base vintage were picked in October 2019 and gently pressed, whole bunch. Press fractions were carefully separated and left to naturally settle for 24 hours. Primary fermentation, with indigenous yeasts, took place in a combination of stainless-steel tanks and used oak barrels, followed by complete malolactic fermentation.  Following 7 months of élevage, the final blend, complete with reserve wine from our 4000 L concrete tanks, was bottled and left to age on lees for a minimum of 14 months. At disgorgement the wine received 1.5 g/L dosage and was aged for a minimum of 3 months under cork.

Tasting Note:

Pale golden colour with and lively stream of fine bubbles. The nose is intense with aromas of lemon, peach yoghurt and quince. The palate is rich with notes of nectarine, flint and salinity. There is a citrus driven acidity with hints of peaches and cream. This wine is dry and well weighted with a long balanced acidity.
