Description & Technical Information
-
Gusbourne Brut Reserve is solely based on 2016 vintage. The vineyards are boosted by the small microclimate Gusbourne experiences due to the proximity to the English Channel. South facing coastal escarpment allows the vines to bask in glorious English sunshine. It is the second driest place in England, receiving as little as 7mm of rain per week during the growing season.

Weather:The year started off with fairly good weather and bud-burst occurred at the normal time. Some vineyards, especially those in West Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire, suffered from a few late spring frosts which set their vines back (especially Chardonnay) and led to low yields in those vineyards affected. Weather during the planting season was fair with little rain, but from around mid-May to the end of June, conditions were wet and temperatures below average which led to Downy Mildew starting in some vineyards.

Technical Information:
Grape Varieties: 27% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 33% Meunier
Ageing: 3 years on the lees
Dosage: 9 g/l
Drink: Now to 2022

Tasting Note: Bright gold in colour, this blend highlights red fruit aromas of cherry and strawberry, which then develop into attractive fresh pastry notes with a touch of cinnamon and spice. With a bright streak of citrus fruit, the palate is clean and fresh whilst giving tones of soft stone fruit and a long, refreshing finish.
