Josh, head winemaker Chapel Down, describes this as his experimental wine, utilising partial wild fermentation & fermentation on gross lees.
Nice leafy nose with elderflower, lime zest, pineapple & cut grass. This wine has a gentle but subtle palate.
You could almost say it’s too relaxed, but there are some interesting layers.
Initial bite of juicy green apples, then citrus and passion fruit leading to elderflower flavours. A dry fresh finish with long lasting lime peel flavours. Nice flavour evolution.
WOTM May 2019 A celebration of English Chardonnay purity, and it comes with such welcoming texture and complexity.
Baked apple pudding and ripe stone fruit flavours set the stage for an incredibly approachable Blanc de Blancs.
Both driving and giving, ending on a delicious honey roasted nut complexity that lingers elegantly on the finish.
This fine English Chardonnay straddles that fine line between textural oaky delight and precise, punchy fruit purity.
A really grown-up wine that is more Pouilly-Fumé in style than it is New World Sauvignon Blanc.
Fresh, clean and dry with flavours of crisp apple, lime and a twist of tropical fruit.
