Sourced from fruit grown in Kent and only produced in exceptional vintages, resulting in a highly aromatic white wine with delicate herbal aromas and citrus and floral characters on the palate.

Crisp & Zesty
Traditionally grown on the Iberian Peninsula, the Albariño grape variety is acclaimed for its refreshing stone fruit flavours, acidity and hints of salinity. It's small, thick skinned grapes make it hard to produce, however trial plantings by the Nicholas family (long time Albariño advocates) in Sandhurst, Kent have demonstrated it's potential long term success in growing in a warming UK maritime climate.
Whilst almost all red wines use malolactic fermentation to create smoother end products. At Chapel Down, we utilise the same process of converting tart malic acid into softer lactic acid for a variety of our white wines. This allows for additional velvety texture and body to be added to these wines, without overpowering signature floral or citrus aromas.
