For this English sparkling wine, we've taken inspiration from the traditions which have come before. Combining Chardonnay, a white grape variety which provides fruit notes and an elegant finish, and two red grape varieties, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, for greater body and cohesion.
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.
