TASTE
Refined, creamy sparkling wine that offers a brilliant balance between chalky, fruity/floral and yeasty, bready notes. The mousse is extremely fine and the palate dry without being austere. With impressive richness on the finish, this is one of England’s most complete traditional method wines.

PRODUCER
The Liddell family have farmed at Cottonworth, in the Test Valley, for five generations. They planted their first vines in 2005, and the vineyard has grown ever since, along with Cottonworth’s reputation as a top-drawer sparkling wine producer. Before that, Hugh Liddell, who runs the wine side of the farm, worked and studied in Burgundy, and has since done vintages in South Africa and New Zealand as well as gaining a viticulture and oenology degree from Plumpton College, allowing him to be fully hands-on in the production of these exceptional wines.

VINEYARD
The vines are planted at 40-70 metres above sea level on south- and southeast-facing slopes of varying degrees of chalkiness: Chardonnay on the soils with the highest chalk content, Pinot Meunier on those with the lowest, and Pinot Noir on intermediate soils. The Pinot Noir is mainly from Champagne clones, with some Burgundy clones giving weight to the white blend, and colour to the rosé.

WINERY
The grapes were pressed gently in a traditional basket press, then the juice fermented in a mixture of temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and barriques. The wine was then blended and bottled for the second fermentation, and spent several years on lees before disgorgement.
