Spectacular Gold medal-winning bubbles from the rising star of English winemaking

    • To me, Blanc de Blancs from chalk-grown Chardonnay is the true king of sparkling wines. My Hampshire vineyard is in the same chalk belt as Champagne, the most famous fizz region in the world, and this wine is perhaps even more crisp and complex.
    • My Old Winchester Hill BdB has a scrumptious nutty nose, lifted by fresh citrus aromas. The flavour is all green mango and lime zest, with a hint of sourdough bread, adding an extra layer of complexity... all topped of with a lovely smooth dryness on the finish.
    • There’s only a tiny amount to go round. But Angel funding and encouragement will help us to ramp up production of these bubbles in the future. I’ve dreamed of expanding my winery for years… now I can finally do it!
