Kit's Coty

Kit's Coty, a premium range of wines produced from a single vineyard located in the North Downs of Kent

At Kit’s Coty the elements combine to produce wines of exceptional quality: lime-rich chalk soil and a unique micro-climate on
the southerly facing slopes of the North Downs. Highest levels of viticulture and winemaking practices are employed with whole-bunch pressed fruit undergoing wild yeast fermentation and extended ageing in barrel.

History
History

Situated on one of the oldest agrarian landscapes in Britain, Kit’s Coty is named after the monuments to the first settlers of Britain’s earliest farming society who recognised the fertility of the land in the third millennium BC. We acquired the land in 2007 and 95 acres are now planted of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Bacchus.

The Vineyard

The Kit’s Coty vineyard sits in the sheltered lee of steep chalk hills that rise above keeping cool northerly winds at bay. The expansive southerly aspect ensures the vines capture the sunshine all year long while the warm, free-draining chalk soils provide the perfect terroir for producing well balanced vines and intensely flavoured fruit. Restricting yields and maintaining vine balance allow vines to fulfil their potential, producing fruit that truly express their identity and the unique qualities of the soil. This results in wines of purity, intensity and complexity.

History Quote
“The magic of “terroir” combines
with the highest levels of viticulture and winemaking to produce truly world-class wines. Once again, the bar in English Wines has been raised!”
Mark Harvey

These single varietal wines have been created by our winemaking team from grapes grown on the fantastic terroir of our Kit's Coty Estate in Kent, more details will be released closer to the launch date.

Kit's Coty Chardonay 2013

In Spring 2016 Kit's Coty Chardonnay 2013 was released, shortly afterwards this exceptional wine was awarded a Platinum medal and 'Best UK White Wine over £15' in the Decanter World Wine Awards 2016. Kit's Coty Chardonnay 2013 has now sold out, here's a little about it in anticipation of our full collection being launched.

Tasting Notes

This limited production wine has rich aromas of apple, apricot and buttered toast with hints of nutmeg. On the palate it has layers of flavour and creamy texture which lead on to the long, intense but fresh finish.

"Have you ever tasted an elite Chardonnay from our shores? This new release is the finest English version I've tasted. There is sheer beauty behind this label!"

Matthew Jukes - The Daily Mail Weekend Magazine (June 2016)
