WINE REVIEW

It’s great to see Chapel Down continue to explore and push English wine boundaries with this, the first commercially produced single varietal Albariño to be made in England. This wine was made form 5 year old vines grown in Kent’s Sandhurst Vineyard.

This aromatic wine has lovely perfumed aromas of white peach and flower with lemon and green apple notes.

The palate is super crisp with intense acidity and lemon freshness. The more fruity character comes through on the mid taste as juicy peach flavours takes hold. A dry finish with hints of mineral and a really lengthy citrus tang draws you back in.

This wine brings a meeting of the juicy fruity qualities of Albariño grape with the crisper citrus English qualities coming through.

A super vibrant and uniquely English take on an iconic Spanish grape!
