Estate Selection 2019

From £15.95

We continue to select the highest quality batches from across the vineyard to create our Estate wine.   In 2019 this led us to a blend of Chardonnay, Ortega and a small amount of Bacchus to create a wine of great balance and intriguing complexity.

The generous nose offers aromas of jasmine, apricot, medlar, melon and white fig.  The palate is medium bodied, smooth and fresh with a pleasing nutty finish.  A proportion of the Chardonnay was reserve wine from 2018 matured in large young French Oak barrel for 12 months which has contributed smoothness, body and complexity to the blend.

  1. Matthew Jukes, Vineyard Magazine.

    Vineyard Magazine – September 2021
    If any winery in the country thinks that they can live without oak in their armoury then they are mistaken and this wine will show you why.
    Made form Chardonnay, Ortega and a dribble of Bacchus, this wine is a masterclass in assembling a thoughtful blend from delicate components in a sensitive and beautifully balanced manner. While Ortega (22%) has its own particular juiciness, the oak in this wine was only deployed in the Chardonnay component and it was done with devastating precision. Bacchus’s job is to come in on the finish in order to bring levity and a snap of acidity. The Chardonnay was kept on its lees in a mix of new and older barrels and this allowed it to build in succulence and faint biscuitiness without adding any carpentry notes whatsoever to the finished wine. The result is a harmonious and complex white with summer orchard fruit, gentle florals and nice citrus touches and, given the value for money, it is definitely one of the most discreet and yet intellectually stimulating white wines of the year.
