Dorset Crémant Brut
|Grapes||Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir|
|Origin||United Kingdom, English Sparkling Wine|
From this top UK sparkling producer in Dorset comes this exciting new release. A 50/50 blend of the cold 2015 and warmer 2016 vintage. All three of the classic Champagne grapes, but dominated by Chardonnay with a relatively high dosage of 9 g/s/l which perfectly balances the 2015’s acidity. This is England’s first ever 'Crémant' and only the third UK PDO. Ground-breaking and delicious! Winemaker's notes (Dec 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The Dorset estate of esteemed wine writer Steven Spurrier and his wife Arabella. The vines are planted in an amphitheatre-like vineyard overlooking the village of Litton Cheney, near Bridport. Following Steven's tests, the local geology here was found to be very similar to Champagne, perhaps rather unsurprisingly as the village of Kimmeridge is a short distance away with its geologically identical chalky soil to the Champagne region. The wines here are a real joy to drink, beautiful fruit comes off these rolling vineyards and is vinified at the neighbouring Furleigh Estate by the brilliant Ian Edwards.
