Fairmile Vineyard Classic Cuvee

Description

This white English sparkling wine carries the biscuity aroma associated with lying on the lees (yeast), mellow caramel undertones from a little oak-barrel ageing, and a citrus aftertaste which lingers so well on the palette because of the remarkably low dosage of sugar.

Extra Notes

Fairmile Vineyard's maiden vintage beat highly distinguished and long-established vineyards to be voted England's only Outstanding sparkling white wine by Decanter wine and lifestyle magazine this January 2020. In 2011, local couple Jan and Anthea Mirkowski recognised that the foothills of the Chilterns on the outskirts of Henley would provide the ideal terrain and microclimate for viticulture. The steep south-facing slope helps vines capture the most sunlight – in fact 30% more sunlight during October, when the grapes are ripening. Vines prefer well-drained soil, and Fairmile Vineyard lies on the same flinty chalky marl that stretches across South-East England to the white cliffs of Dover, then under the Channel into Northern France.
