An elegant, svelte and super pure wine with delicate nose of hedgerow flowers, it has finesse, vibrant green fruit and a characteristic toasty flavour. Pale gold in colour and well-balanced on the palate showing crisp acidity and fine mousse. It has delicate toasty characteristics from being aged on lees whilst the gentle oak flavour adds complexity.

This wine is a testament to our signature style, whereby after the grapes were harvested, 25% of the total blend was barrel fermented in three-to-four year old white Burgundy giving the wine lovely texture and richness. The wine spent 8 months in tank and barrel on its fermentation lees. There was no stirring or addition of sulphur dioxide, with occasional topping up. Tirage took place in July 2011 and then the wine spent 21 months ageing on its lees with a further four months on cork after disgorging.

This is the perfect aperitif or celebration drink, it is the flawless accompaniment to any party, enjoyed with any canapé.
