Kit's Coty Chardonnay is widely considered to be one of the finest still wines from England. This multi award-winning wine is produced from the finest Chardonnay parcels within our 95-acre Kit's Coty vineyard on the North Downs of Kent. The grapes are whole bunch pressed before undergoing wild fermentation in old oak barrels to add complexity and texture to the wine. A rich and opulent white wine with complex aromas of white peach, apple and apricot. The palate is well rounded with notes of roasted hazelnuts and buttery hints followed by a long, rich and satisifying finish.

Chardonnay is one of the classic grape varieties for sparkling wine production, for this reason it should come as no surprise that in the UK, where sparkling wine dominates production, Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape variety. While Sparkling is the headliner, Chapel Down has been producing still Chardonnay since 2009. Our home is roughly 280 miles from Chablis as the crow flies and with our sites and clones only getting better, our still Chardonnay's are complex, vibrant and shine a light on this once side-lined grape.
Kit's Coty is a 100 acre vineyard on the North Downs of Kent. Its southerly aspect ensures the vines capture the sunlight all season long, while the warm, free draining chalk soils provide the perfect terroir for producing well balanced, intensely flavoured fruit that truly express their identify and the unique soil qualities.
For our 6th edition Kit's Coty Chardonnay, we hand harvested the grapes in late September 2018. The fruit was whole bunch pressed before undergoing wild fermentation in old French oak barrels. In contrast to our fresher Chardonnay 2020, this vintage of Kit's Coty Chardonnay is more subtly oaked, richer and complex, with a long finish and tasting notes of toasted hazelnut.
