Despite boasting only a short history (the 2006 was their first release) Gusbourne Estate vineyards have notched up quite a reputation, winning awards along the way. The vineyard is at Appledore in Kent, roughly mid-way between Ashford and Rye. Planted with the 'usual' trio of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the grapes are hand-picked. A small portion of the harvest is fermented in oak, but most of it takes place in stainless-steel before the second fermentation in bottle. The wines are aged on their lees for a minimum of 22 months before dégorgement.
