2018 PREAMBLE NO.2

2018 Preamble No.2

This is a wine that captures in the glass all of the complex flavours and aromas we seek in the vineyard on the final days of harvest. Drink 2022-2026.

(Tasting Notes)

Aromas of autumnal, juicy orchard fruits, cooked pears and quince, with hints of sunny orange blossom and honey. With a soft, luxuriant mousse, the stone fruits on the palate are beautifully ripe with an underlying, bright mouth-watering acidity and hints of almond patisserie.

LIMITED EDITION

2018 Zero Dosage & Illustration No.1

A beautiful ‘first-pass’ selection of only the very ripest grapes from our first to ripen Pinot Noir and Chardonnays. With 40 months on the lees, fermentation in wood, and a partial-malo this is a unique sparkling finished in both zero dosage and extra brut form. Notes of yellow plums and apricots, ripe red apple skins and raspberries, with a salinity and touches of baking spices on the finish.

Purchase Case

(Tasting Notes)

Zero Dosage – Bright aromatics of ripe lemon and grapefruit zest, crisp apple and freshly baked sweet pastry. Fine boned and crystalline on the palate with layers of citrus and yellow plum. A pleasing savoury edge of salty minerality, mace and baking spice, lingers on the palate.

Illustration No.1 – The touch of dosage transforms this wine, revealing a juiciness to the orchard and stone fruits, a caramelised aroma to the pastry notes, reminiscent of a fresh apple pie, and a broad weight on the palate, softening the structured edges of it’s twin the Zero Dosage.

2018 BLANC DE BLANCS

From high up in the stunning Stonor Valley, this single parcel wine showcases the exceptional Chardonnay grown in our Hill Top vineyard from the outstanding 2018 vintage. A highly acclaimed landmark for English Blanc de Blancs.

Purchase Case

An early budburst, peak flowering on 20th June, and an excellent ripening season combined to yield a perfect harvest on 4th October. Using these grapes with over 100 days on the vine, the base wines were created without a malolactic fermentation to preserve their acidity, fermented in traditional oak casks, and then kept for 36 months on lees. This artisanal wine will age beautifully and reveals the enormous potential of our exceptional English chalk valley terroir, as it evolves to fully express the memorable 2018 vintage.

(Pairing Notes)

Seared tuna, sesame seeds and crispy seaweed.  Try also with soft goats cheese, fresh figs and baby basil.

(Tasting Notes)

White floral aromas emerging with rich lemons, limes and yuzu delicately filling the palate while white peaches and more exotic notes emerge. Already harmonious
and complex but still tense and evolving in the bottle. A worthy successor to the 2017, which sold out soon after release, this is a landmark wine for Hundred Hills and English sparklings with an anticipated peak in the late 2020s.
