What The Vineyards Say About Their Wines
For each wine we stock, here are what the vineyards say about their own wine.
Brut Reserve NV
“rich, mouthfilling and complex”
Cépage: 65% Chardonnay 35% Pinot Noir
Our Brut Reserve is the third wine we have released, and is a blend of 2010 and 2009 reserve wine. The wine is bottle aged for 3 years.
‘An English blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, which is rich, mouthfilling and complex with typical English hedgerow fruits undertones and a lively crisp tang on the aftertaste.’
– Wine Gang’ Review October 2013
‘Very, very English. All our other drinks that the Brits do well come to mind, apples from the orchard, great aromas of Elderflower. Light and highly entertaining and made on the Hampshire Downs.’
– Matthew Cobb – Wine Advisor
‘Lean but nicely structured. Showing fresh green apple and nettle with hints of smoke and crushed shells unfurling behind. A bone-dry, light mouth-feel and fine, soft mousse punctuated by an unmistakable, zippy lemony acidity typical of English sparkling.’
– Felipe Carvallo – Wine Advisor
‘Elegant hawthorn and acacia on the nose than a palate that has impressive mousse, green apple freshness and hints of autolytic brioche to round it out. The dosage is modest at 10g/l (in English terms at least) but well judged.’
– Simon Field MW
Langham Rosé 2014
reminiscent of summer fruit pudding
Cépage: 89% Pinot noir, 11% Chardonnay
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, which is composed of the same chalk, clay and flint soil as found in the Champagne region. A long growing season and considerate viticulture ensures we harvest the finest grapes possible.
Vinification The grapes were picked from 10th-29th October and gently pressed, whole bunch, in a pneumatic press. Primary fermentation took place in a combination of stainless steel tanks and used oak barrels. We ferment a small batch of Pinot noir each year as a red wine. A dash of this red wine was added to the blend prior to bottling to achieve a deep pink colour and enhance red fruit characteristics. Following secondary fermentation the wine was left to age on lees for 24 months to increase mouthfeel and complexity.
Tasting Note This wine has a beautiful salmon pink colour and a fine stream of small bubbles with a rich nose of butter pastry, strawberry and fresh red cherry. The palate is light and refreshing with flavours reminiscent of summer fruit pudding and a complex honeyed richness on the finish. Enjoy on its own or with fresh fruit desserts.

Awards: First release 19th August 2018
An adynaton is a figure of speech depicting something so unlikely as to verge on the impossible. Vineyards in Great Britain? English red wine? Any prospect in late July 2011 that Aldwick’s recently planted vines might thrive, much less produce internationally accredited wine? Pigs might fly!
Single-minded determination can confound naysayers. The will to succeed can triumph over adversity. Aldwick’s logo epitomises our ascent: a heraldic pig with elevated wings.
Flying Pig is a “vin de soif” – a wine for thirst. This light-hearted blend of carefully selected Pinot Noir and Regent grapes, briefly rested in French oak barrels for optimum refreshment, is best served slightly chilled.
