Classic Chardonnay 2018, Oxney, England
Regular price £41.00
A fabulous blanc de blancs from an organic estate near Rye in East Sussex. Pristine, rounded fruit from a great summer and delicious brioche notes from 36 months on lees. At a recent blind tasting, customers preferred this to a Champagne blanc de Blancs...
Made from Chardonnay grapes hand-picked late September 2018. Each parcel was whole-bunch pressed and fermented separately. All wines underwent malolactic conversion; some were fermented and aged in old Burgundy barrels to add complexity.The base wines were blended and bottled for the second fermentation in Spring 2019. Released in 2022.
