The 2013 vintage is a blend of 62% Chardonnay, 24% Pinot Noir and 14% Pinot Meunier, with a dosage of 10g/l.
Subtle golden tones and the fine streams of bubbles one would expect from a great English Sparkling wine.
Aromas of green apple and light citrus with all sorts of light nuances; hints of floral, minerality, yeasty notes.
The palate is bracing and superbly crisp with the bite of a crisp tangy green apple. There’s a real tightness to this wine; an austere like tension that lowly starts to unfold as the wine hints at depth the will continue to develop.
Jenkyn Place wines are known for their sublime ageing potential, which I can attest to after tasting archive vintages from 2010-2006 at the vineyard this week. The 2013 looks set to follow in these footsteps, with that tightness and acidity guaranteeing a future for this wine.
