Description & Technical Information
-
Hundred Hills produce vintage English sparkling wines from their boutique winery and vineyards located in the Stonor Valley, Oxfordshire. They only ever make wines from the finest grapes from their own vineyards and tightly control quality at every stage along the road, from planting vines to popping corks. From the outset Hundred Hills have chosen to produce low yielding, high quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and have focused hard to create outstanding chalk valley vineyards, where grapes can slowly grow and ripen on the vine every year for more than the magical hundred days. From the wooded chalk valleys of Hundred Hills emerge clean, clear wines that truly reflect a sense of time and place in the way the very best Burgundies seek to do. The wines from Hundred Hills vary year by year and their winemaking is minimalist in style allowing as pure a vintage expression of the vineyard as possible.

Vineyards: Steep chalk slopes, warmed gently through the English summer, and soils poor enough that every year the vines must struggle for survival and produce the most enticing grapes they can. From the outset Hundred Hills focused on the low yielding, high quality forms of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that had produced so many great wines in Burgundy and Champagne during the twentieth century, now the climate of Southern England in the twenty-first. Hundred Hills carefully segmented their vineyard into ten parcels, each with their own aspect, slopes and soils, and now all filled with different Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines.

Weather in 2018: An early budburst, peak flowering on 20th June, and an excellent ripening season combined to yield a perfect harvest on 30th September. Using these grapes with over 100 days on the vine, the base wines were created without a malolactic fermentation to preserve their acidity, fermented in traditional oak casks, and then kept for 36 months on lees. This artisanal wine will age beautifully and reveals the enormous potential of our exceptional English chalk valley terroir, as it evolves to fully express the memorable 2018 vintage.

Technical Information:
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Region: Stonor Valley, Oxfordshire
Lees Ageing: 3 Years
Dosage: 4 g/l
Bottling date: May 2019
Disgorged: April 2022
Drink: Now to 2028

Tasting Note: White floral aromas emerging with rich lemons, limes and yuzu delicately filling the palate while white peaches and more exotic notes emerge. Already harmonious and complex but still tense and evolving in the bottle. A landmark wine for Hundred Hills and English sparklings with an anticipated peak in the late 2020s.

Jancis Robinson MW
“Top parcel of Chardonnay clone 95 on their thinnest soils. Fermented in cask and aged for four months before being blended and spending 36 months on lees. Dosage just 5 g/l in this ripe year. Served in my glass for fullest expression.
Greenish straw. Broad and more oak influence than tartness, though the finish is bone dry. Saline and complex. Excellent in my glass! This would be good with oysters.
Drink 2022–2028”

    July 7, 2022

    Today welcomes Hundred Hills Blanc de Blancs 2018 to our collection of English sparkling wines. Last week we visited @hundredhillswine down in the Stonor Valley, Oxfordshire. We managed to taste a range of their latest vintages alongside the lovely couple who started their boutique venture together. This 2018 vintage really does show the potential of English chalk valley terroir, thin topsoils straight into chalk, gentle to steep slopes, good airflow down the valley and often up to 120 days from flowering to harvest ensures phenolic ripeness in the grapes. A touch of oak spice from large barrels balances well because the grapes have fully ripened and have great richness in texture and fruit. A region to watch…

    The Finest Bubble's visit to Hundred Hills Winery

    June 30, 2022

    Yesterdays visit to @hundredhillswine set down in the floor of the Stonor Valley in Oxfordshire. A unique opportunity to explore the winery and learn about the benefits of its position in the valley, their use of chalk and their work towards a sustainable future. Carefully segmented into ten parcels filled with different Chardonnay and Pinot noir vines each with their own expressions, Hundred Hills benefits from its location in the valley being warmed gently through the summer with a light breeze filtering through. Relying heavily on cover crops to help sustain the soils nutrients the winery doesn’t use any herbicides. Farmed on vast chalk soils gives their sparkling wines a fresh and unique taste differing with every vintage.
