Tasting Note

96/100 - "bold and compelling" - Decanter.com

A limited release, made from barrel-aged Chardonnay (70%) and Pinot Noir (30%), this wine has a fine persistent mousse with soft approachable fruit, a subtle hint of autolysis and a delicate oak character.

A family owned business in the heart of Hampshire, Hattingley valley has been winning international acclaim and awards ever since its first vintage in 2013. This English wine project began in 2008 and has developed into an a custom built, eco-friendly winery (first in the UK to adopt solar power), farming some 24 hectares of vines across two separate sites. Hattingley Valley employs the traditional method to create the bubbles, but key to the distictive style of the wines is a unique combination of techniques.  Ageing both in barrels and on the lees brings about a generosity and sophistication of texture - a rare thing among English wines.  As such, Hattingley Valley is already regarded as a top brand abroad, and looks to be gaining similar recognition at home.

Online exclusive: this wine is available to buy on our website, and not in our Bath shop. If you wish to collect from our shop, simply order online and select the ‘free collection’ option at the checkout. Your wine will be available for you to collect within three business days.

Product Information

Winemaking

After rigorous taste tests, only the top 7 barrels were selected out of 180 available. Once bottled the wine spent 30 months on lees and a minimum of 6 months on cork before release.

Food Recommendation

Citrus and baked apple aromas combine with hints of toast and rich spices to make this the perfect aperitif or celebration drink.

Press

  • 96/100 - This recent release of Hattingley’s top cuvée is a bold and compelling wine. A barrel-fermented blend of 70% Chardonnay with 30% Pinot Noir, it has spent 30 months on its lees. The taste is like warm buttered toast spread with tangy lemon curd, while the finish is long, focussed and satisfying. Still in the flush of youth, it has undoubted hidden depths and needs time to evolve. Drinking Window 2019 - 2029
