Freed from grape variety restrictions, the blend for our flagship English sparkling lines has its basis in the three traditional varieties of Chardonnay (48%), Pinot Noir (42%) and Pinot Meunier (5%), but also includes Pinot Blanc (5%). Pinot Blanc provides a key point of differentiation, imparting these wines with a stand out floral delicacy.
To ensure consistent top quality fruit for this wine, we source from a collection of vineyards in Kent, Sussex and Essex. Grapes are grown predominantly on single and double guyot pruning systems, on varied soils including, chalk, clay and loam soils to best benefit the grape varietals grown.
The tradition sparkling method used by Champagne producers starts with wine grapes (both white and red) fermented separately before being mixed together into a special cuvee blend. A small amount of yeast, sugar and wine is added to start the secondary fermentation. This fermentation traps carbon dioxide in the bottle. Bottles are then slowly rotated over time to settle the dead yeast in the neck of the bottle. Finally the dead yeast particles are removed via disgorging, with the wine mixture topped up with a liquer de tirage.
