A light fresh crisp wine with subtle hints of vanilla and citrus aromas. Made from 100% Chardonnay, hand-harvested from mature vines grown in vineyards situated on the Hog’s Back region of the North Downs, close to the village of Puttenham, just outside Guildford. Fermentation is carried out entirely in used oak barriques and the wine is also aged for six months. The wine spends about 28 months ageing on its lees prior to disgorgement, and the addition of a dosage of 4g/l of sugar.
