Our best-selling English wine is a sparkling combination of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier which spends a minimum of thirty six months on lees and three months on cork before release.
Bright golden in colour with a fine, delicate mousse and aromas of pear, mandarin and orange blossom on the nose. The palate is dominated by citrus and orchard fruit, with ripe lemon juice, orange and pear, alongside stone fruits and hints of ginger. The wine displays notes of freshly baked bread and apple tarte tatin, with a long length and lively freshness on the finish.
A perfect fizz to enjoy on a special occasion.
"We've been fans of Gusbourne for years. There's a real precision to their winemaking that makes all the components just work together effortlessly. Delicate and fresh, with an underlying richness, each sip offers something new and exciting."
Gusbourne was founded by Andrew Weeber and planted their first vines in Appledore, Kent in 2004. Their ambitious vision is to produce the finest wines in the world. Using Burgundian clones of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay that yield smaller volumes of intense fruit, and traditional methods they debuted their first vintages – Brut Reserve 2006 and Blanc de Blancs 2006 – in 2010 to critical acclaim, earning accolades from the world’s most exacting wine critics. Gusbourne sparkling and still wines continue to win prestigious national and international industry awards every year.
Their vineyard manager Jon Pollard champions a low-intervention, sustainable approach. Their chief winemaker Charlie Holland is the only three-time winner of the IWSC English Wine Producer of the Year.
Every wine they make at Gusbourne tells their unique story. Care, craft and uncompromising attention to detail enable them to make the very best of what nature provides.
