The long gentle summer allowed the grapes to flourish on the vines for well over 100 days with a harvest late into October.  The base wines were crafted without a malolactic fermentation to preserve their acidity, then softened in large oak casks and aged on their lees for 48 months.  This is a complex wine, which reveals the potential of our exceptional English chalk valley terroir and will age for many years to come, gently changing its expressions of the 2016 vintage.

(Pairing Notes)

Perfect with sushi and shellfish dishes.  Bass ceviche, corn and lime on squid ink wafers.  Scallop and white fish sushi.

(Tasting Notes)

Honeyed aromas of baked apples and fruit jams.  Nectarine and apricot notes with creamy intensity on the palate and delicate exotic touches. Already complex but still fresh and taut with further to evolve. Enormous potential with an anticipated peak in the late 2020s.

The steep slopes helped these vines escape the April spring frosts and enjoy a strong flowering and excellent ripening season.  Using grapes with over 100 days on the vine, the base wines were created without a malolactic fermentation to preserve their acidity, aged for 6 months in traditional oak casks and then a further 30 months on lees. This artisanal wine will age for many years to come and reveals the potential of our exceptional English chalk valley terroir, gently evolving its expressions of the 2017 vintage.

White floral aromas emerging with yellow plums, greengages and nectarines on the palate. Already harmonious and complex but still tense and under construction in the bottle. A landmark wine for Hundred Hills and English sparklings with an anticipated peak in the mid-late 2020s.
