Winemaker Notes

A subtle array of aromas from ripe red apple and strawberry to buttered brioche and toasted hazlenuts. The palate has delicacy and depth which leads to a rich finish with fantastic length and fine persistent bubbles.

Ideal as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to grilled fish or risotto.

Wine Enthusiast

A restrained but impressive notion of honeyed oatmeal on the nose makes for a promising opening. A crisp green-apple note plays alongside ripe lemon. The palate shows fine, elegant mousse, amplifying those restrained aromas of honey, oatmeal and biscuit. This wine is at a perfect juncture of freshness and evolution, with wonderfully developed autolytic notes and great balance. The finish is long and moreish.

Chapel Down's head winemaker Josh Donaghay-Spire looks for the key features of freshness and vibrancy in wines -- and English fruit really delivers on this, whether it be unique aromatic white wines, classic fizz, or a twist on a rich Chablis-esque Chardonnay. Balance is at the heart of every good wine and Josh's aim, in the vineyard and in the winery, is to strive for perfect balance.

Chapel Down's sparkling wines are produced using the intricate Traditional Method, the same method as Champagne, where the bubbles occur naturally within the bottle. The winery produces a variety of styles from the youthful and vibrant Brut NV, to the more mature and complex Three Graces which is aged for four years before release. Honing what are becoming classic English wine styles is very important, but the team at Chapel Down also seeks to continually improve and develop styles.

The still wines are typified by aromatic delicacy and vibrancy of fruit from crisp, clean white wines to delicate rosés and elegant light red wines. England is becomingly increasingly known for its Bacchus white wines, which are considered England’s answer to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Chapel Down produces five different expressions of Bacchus ranging from crisp and vegetal to rich and tropical. The team is continually experimenting with new varieties and winemaking styles, such as the winery's late harvest Nectar and England’s first Albariño.

The limestone soils of England’s southern end have proven ideal for the production of sparkling wine. While it might seem too damp and cold for grape growing, recent warm summers and the onset of global warming signify great future growth for the British wine industry.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
