A Note from Jancis Robinson
We’re thrilled to have received another wonderful tasting note from JancisRobinson.com,
this time for our 2018 Chardonnay in a comparative tasting of 25 English Chardonnays.

“Tasted blind. Crackling with bright, lime-green, apple-sherbet energy.
The acidity buzzes across the palate and there is a kind of light-filled iridescence
that somehow puts me in mind of a dragonfly, in summer, darting around the surface of a cold, stony stream.
Good length and persistence. Packed with flavour – kiwi, green apples, greengage, lime. I loved this.”
It was labelled as Good Value and rated 16.5 out of 20,
which on the the Jancis Robinson scale sits between distinguished and superior!
About our 2018 Chardonnay
A crisp, dry white wine with complexity and character, made from 100% Chardonnay.
Notes of apple and tropical fruits with butter and vanilla on the finish,
balanced by relatively high acidity. The grapes are gently pressed and undergo slow cool fermentation,
followed by malolactic fermentation, then the wine has six months in two-year-old French oak.
This is a wine to pair with food, particularly seafood such as turbot, scallops, devilled crab or lobster
(hence the lobster on the label), Excellent with rich sauces and as a compliment to fine cooking.
