Hattingley Valley Overview
+
Classic Cuvée is Hattingley Valley's signature blend and is a testament to their style, whereby after the grapes were harvested, 25% of the total blend was barrel fermented in three-to-four year old white Burgundy and Bordeaux oak barrels, giving the wine lovely texture and richness. The wine then spent eight months maturing in tank and barrel on its fermentation lees.

Weather: Following a disappointing harvest in 2012, the 2013 season in England produced grapes of great ripeness and maturity. Early signs of a long cold winter resulted in delayed budburst by two weeks, however a very hot summer throughout July ensured that the grapes grew healthily, yielding incredibly complex fruit flavours.

Technical Information:
Grape Varieties: 48% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir, 17% Pinot Meunier, 2% Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris
Ageing: 8 months on the lees
Dosage: 9 g/l
Drink: 2017-2020

Tasting Note: On the nose strong brioche notes combine with alluring oak characteristics. A well-balanced acidity on the palate leads the way for a well-rounded and fruit forward finish.

“Tasted blind. Some savour on the nose and pretty frothy on the palate. Quite a bit of green-apple flavour. Clean enough but not very charming. Young. Bone-dry finish.
Drink 2017-2020”
