A nine acre vineyard in Marden, Kent, owned by Nick Hall, and named by him in memory of Herbert, his grandfather. Planted with 40% Chardonnay and 30% each of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, and farmed organically. Handmade, Traditional Method. Primary fermentation in stainless steel tanks with 10% of the blend fermented in oak barrels. Secondary fermentation in bottle. Malolactic fermentation adds richness while retaining the integrity of the fruit.
Much is made of the strata of chalk soil that hosts the vineyards of Champagne, that runs under northern France and the Channel to re-emerge in Kent and Sussex as the Downs, and many of England’s vineyards cling to that very chalk soil. But, crucially, we have the climate, on the very margins of where grapes can be persuaded to ripen, to produce the tart base wines that are ideal for high quality sparkling wine production. All that, the classic grape varieties and much expertise and even more enthusiasm has propelled England to the forefront of the sparkling wine world. In this case we've got wines from five different estates, all with something to say on the subject, and the case includes a couple of cheeky rosés because we do it so well.
