Bride Valley Brut Reserve 2014

Bride Valley Brut Reserve 2014

Ref: A0686

The wonderful silver pallor and delicate but persistent bubbles give this wine an instant appeal in the glass. The bouquet is rich in white flowers and white summer fruits, such as pear and peach but with classically English undertones of elderflower and green apples. On the palate, the wine is vivacious but wonderfully subtle, with a minerality and freshness on the finish that will remain while it fills out in bottle over the next 24 months

2014 was a wonderful year for English Sparkling Wine. Spring arrived exactly on time and was the second warmest in 100 years. This resulted in an early and even bud break. Throughout June and July, conditions were warm and sunny which was ideal for flowering and fruit set. August was cooler and wet, but September and October were dry and temperatures climbed again. This long, warm Autumn gave us near perfect conditions to ripen the grapes,
resulting in excellent sugar and acidity - and creating the perfect fruit for a vibrant and deeply satisfying vintage

Typically a blend of 50% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, this is a wine that combines stunning fruit with delicacy and precision. It is aged on its lees for between 14 and 24 months and recieves a light "dosage" when bottled to bring out its natural elegance. Released around Easter, 2 – 3 years after the vintage, it ages well and will continue to show complexity in the bottle .

After 50 years involved in wine – and inspired by the unique chalky soils on his wife’s Dorset sheep farm – Steven Spurrier decided to join the English sparkling wine revolution.
In 2008, he and Bella went to select the finest Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier root stocks from Burgundy’s famous Pepinieres Guillaume vine nursery.
In 2011 the very first harvest was picked, selling out on release in 2014.
Now there are over 10 hectares under cultivation, making 3 delicious wines, on the chalky south facing slopes above the beautiful Dorset village of Litton Cheney.

Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
