Winemaker Notes

The Classic Reserve is pale gold with a well-developed nose showing a hint of autolysis with subtle oak character. It is well-balanced on the palate showing crisp acidity and fine mousse. It has delicate toasty characteristics from the ageing on lees whilst the gentle oak flavour adds complexity.

Blend: 48% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir, 17% Pinot Meunier & 2% Pinot Gris

Wine Enthusiast

A sense of Golden Delicious apple flesh is brightened by ripe lemon juiciness on the vivid nose of the wine. The palate adds a lovely note of buttery biscuit, providing a backdrop for the frothy foam and the lemony brightness, and enriching the slender palate. A lovely depth is hinted at, sure to show more of itself with some more bottle age, but for now this is a fruity, bright, dry, brisk joy. Valkyrie Selections.

No doubt here, the Hattingley Valley Classic Reserve Sparkling Wine puts England on the map as a bona fide producer of bubblies. This wine exhibits pleasing aged character and a long and crisp aftertaste. This is a perfect choice as an aperitif wine. (Tasted: January 17, 2018, San Francisco, CA USA)

Moderate nose with red apples and a chalky, underlying minerality. Fine autolytic flavours and good intensity from start to finish. A tangy and tasty example.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Disgorged in February 2019, the latest rendition of the NV Brut Classic Reserve is showing well, exhibiting scents of yellow orchard fruit, apricot, dried white flowers and crushed chalk. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with good depth and balance, nicely integrated acids and a precise finish. This still needs some time to unwind after its disgorgment, so if possible, forget it for a few more months in the cellar.

Hattingley Valley, British
Hattingley Valley Winery Image

Hattingley Valley was founded in 2008 by Simon and Nicola Robinson in Hampshire, England with its chalky soils and climate ideally suited for sparkling wines. They planted their first 7.3 hectares on a south-facing site with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier using laser-guided planting technology. Today, the team manages over 24 hectares (60 acres) of vines across two well-situated sites. Led by winemaker Emma Rice, Hattingley sparkling wines are all made in the traditional method with the highest quality standards – leading the charge for the English Sparkling wine movement.

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

A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
