Chapel Down White Blend Brut NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Chapel Down is the leading English Wine brand. With improvements in the vineyard and winery and with the expertise of a skilled winemaking team, the quality of Chapel down wines has been improving every year. They are now winning awards both nationally and internationally and fittingly their wines are served in the House of Commons and various Government departments as well as overseas embassies. The Chapel Down brand has been growing in reputation for the past ten years, and has been winning awards every year for the quality of both its still and sparkling wines. Regularly rated higher than wines at twice the price, Chapel Down Sparkling wines availability has only been limited by production. Their main recent success has been with our Pinot Reserve 1999 vintage which won a Gold Medal at the International Wine Challenge in 2004. This is the first time that an English Sparkling wine has ever achieved this honour and means that this Chapel Down wine is one of the best 22 Champagnes or Sparkling wines in the world! This is a real indication that winemaking in England has really come of age and is a credit to Owen Elias and his winemaking team. The background terroir in the south east of England on the Downs is identical to that of Champagne; a chalky or limestone outcrop with alluvial clay deposits just below the surface. This clean and refreshing sparkling wine is made by the traditional method. It has a lively refreshing mousse, good depth, crisp fruit and a palate with attractive yeast overtones.
