Not only is Chapel Down’s ubiquitous Flint Dry one of the most accessible English wines (it’s available in Waitrose stores nationwide for around £11), but its flavour profile is just such a crowd pleaser that gets better and better with each new vintage.
Fresh citrus aromas with lots of green fruit, hints of dried flowers and herbs and that oh-so-English hedgerow quality that typifies English white wine.
Of the recent vintages, this feels like the most balanced Flint Dry to date. Fresh, clean and dry with flavours of crisp apple, lime and a twist of tropical fruit and floral aromatics.
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.
A wonderfully full and involving palate with superb flavours of orchard fruit and a real nutty oatmeal quality.
