Concluding a great year for Chapel Down is what I feel to be the most elegant and refined wine in their range.
This is their first BdB with 100% malolactic fermentation and it has spent 4 years on its lees prior to release.
Stunning on the nose with apple, citrus, sweet brioche and spiced biscuit aromas.
The streams of fine tiny bubbles lead to a deliciously creamy and smooth palate enriched with tangy baked apple, citrus and vanilla pastry flavours.
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.
