About the Brut Reserve No.6
No 6 is based on 2017, a year noted by its devastating frost both in the UK and in Europe. After being severely frosted in 2016 we were not going to stand by and let it happen again so wisely invested in an army of frost candles and managed to ward it off with very little damage. We were rewarded with a relatively cool but calm season and started picking late September, our earliest pick on record. 2017 favoured Chardonnay and it really shows in the wine with a more refined, soft and gentle character than previous releases. 20% oak aged reserve wines were used in the blend to add extra richness, complexity and length. Always fresh and vibrant on release it will reward extra cellaring with increased toasty complexity. Drink now until 2028.
About the Brut Rosé 2018
Our 5th vintage release of our ever-popular Rosé, this time from the truly exceptional year of 2018. The hottest and driest growing season for the last 30 years produced a ripe, abundant and disease free crop; the rare trifecta in grape growing terms. This weather translated into an easy life for a winemaker, pick when you want, and then just gently guide the wine through the process without having to do much at all. As a consequence we have an ‘easy’ wine, easy to make and consequently really easy to love. This 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Meunier blend receives a 7% red Pinot Noir addition to add rich red fruits, and a beautiful colour. We ferment 30% in aged oak barrels to build that lovely signature texture and weight. Open and friendly on release it will continue to develop more complexity for many years to come.
