TASTING NOTES
Really vivid aromas of apple and blackberry lead to a restrained, elegant palate with tiny bubbles and an excellent long finish.This refreshing blend of pinot noir, chardonnay, pinot meunier and pinot precoce come together to produce a magnificent display of red summer fruit aromas beautifully balanced on a subtle backdrop of vanilla.

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.
The chalky soil is a wonderful medium in which to plant vines for sparkling wine production, as it will drain very easily but keep just enough water for the vines to function at their best. Chalky soil is also poor in nutrients, which stresses the vines – helping to produce superior fruit. Gently stressing the vines is one of the key elements for producing great wine. If the vines are a little stressed, like a great artist or poet, they seem to react by producing a more interesting and complex result. Thus, along with the challenging climate, England is fast becoming an ideal place to grow great sparkling wines!

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 with a component of red Pinot Noir and bottled for the second fermentation, spending several years on lees before disgorgement.
