In our latest Round-up, John takes a look at harvest 2020 and selects a range of the latest, most delicious still and sparkling English wines.
We caught up with Jacob and Zoë of Black Chalk amidst a hive of activity including new wine releases and the construction of a brand new winery.
Very pure, with a textured oaty grip that contrasts well with the clean, precise fruit flavours and delicate minerality
Hampshire’s Black Chalk has announced continued expansion of its operations, with the addition of vineyards bringing the total up to 12 hectares.
A beautiful sense of purity and an almost powdery, sherbert-like texture.
The first part of month’s round-up features a trio of tantalisingly good Blanc de Blancs as well fresh new sparkling rosé.
Next month’s ProWein will see Black Chalk seek opportunities to launch its wines to the international arena.
What impresses the most is the precision of the flavour; it’s a very fruit-focused sparkling.
A bright, wild rosé with intense strawberry, raspberry and cherry blossom character.
Today is the launch of one of the most anticipated wine releases of the year so far, Jacob Leadley’s Black Chalk.
