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
