The use of oak in English White Wine

Subtly oaked whites

Further to my last post on the future of English Still Wines, I thought it was interesting to read Matthew Jukes article in the September issue of VINEYARD magazine regarding the value of the ‘subtle use of oak’ in English White Wines.

He states that ‘subtly oaked wines’ are fast becoming his favourite style and reviews three English white wines including our Estate Selection 2019 to illustrate his point.   We certainly agree that oak can add an important extra dimension to our white wines and stylistically this can take on a range of options from ‘super-subtle’ to ‘clearly noticeable’.   If you would like to try a sample of the latter, then I suggest a bottle of our Limited Edition Barrel 24 Chardonnay.
