Sparkling Wine - England

Hambledon Premiere Cuvee

£53.86
First established in 1952, Ian Kellett acquired Hambledon Vineyard in 1999. As a passionate wine lover, Ian was intrigued by the winemaking heritage of the property. Research convinced him that sparkling wines were the future and in 2005 Ian planted a 10-acre ‘test bed’ of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the Champagne classics. Hambledon Vineyard now comprises over 200 acres of vineyards and the House produces three cuvées, all of which are currently Chardonnay-led, non-vintage blends, capitalising on the quality of the chalky terroir of the South Downs and its ability to produce top quality wines.

Using all three traditional Champagne grape varieties, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier, this wine will not fail to disappoint any bubbles fan. Complexity, acidity, length and texture are all beautifully judged and combine seamlessly on the palate making this the perfect accompaniment to lobster, scallops, oysters, monkfish, turbot and dover sole. Best served between 10 and 12°C. Enjoy now, or choose to age in the cellar.

Tasting Note:
Confit lemon, orange blossom and white lily on the nose, nestling amongst ripe apricot, white peach and baked red apple. The palate intensifies, yet maintaining a precise structure, creamy texture and mouth-watering acidity. Incredibly complex and immensely enjoyable.
