All Langham Estate wines are made using grapes grown at our single site in rural Dorset. The Crawthorne vineyard consists of 12 hectares planted solely with the classic Champagne varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The site was carefully selected for its south facing slope and free-draining chalk subsoil. A long growing season and considerate viticulture ensures we harvest the finest grapes possible.
The grapes for the base vintage were picked in October 2018 & gently pressed, whole bunch. Press fractions were carefully separated & left to naturally settle for 24 hours. Primary fermentation took place in a combination of stainless-steel tanks & used oak barrels, followed by complete malolactic fermentation. Following 7 months of élevage, the final blend was created including 6% red wine & 15% reserve wine. It was then bottled & left to age on lees for a minimum of 20 months. At disgorgement the wine received 3 g/L dosage & was aged for a minimum of 4 months under cork.
There are aromas aplenty here with cherry bakewell, pink lady apple skin, raspberry yoghurt & wild strawberries. The palate reflects this fresh red berry profile, but it is also more serious & has great depth. Cherry yoghurt, young wild strawberry & raspberry coulis bring the fruit profile to the forefront, whilst a more savoury & saline note of habas fritas (fried salted broad beans) rounds off this delicious wine. There is a well-balanced yet crunchy acidity which carries the finish on this wine very well.
