The first vines were planted in Winchelsea at Charles Palmer Vineyards in 2006. The business is family run, with winemaking duties handled externally by Will Davenport until the 2017 vintage.
With gentle streams of fine bubbles and light golden tones, the Classic Cuvée impresses with its open and opulent nose, full of ripe stone fruit, sweet brioche and honeyed pastry notes.
It doesn’t let down on the palate either, as a rather full and unctuous experience unfolds. Fleshy peach, baked orchard fruit and apricot pastry all come to mind.
The fruits are fleshy, juicy and sweet, though a firm dry acidity and brilliant lemon meringue zing cuts through it all and forms a real treat for the taste buds!
