100% Chardonnay wild yeast ferment in barrels and Foudre with an elevage of over 12 months for the base wine. Traditional Method with a further 5 years on lees.
The wines produced at Ancre Hill express the terroir of ancient mudstone and sandstone soils, giving the wines their character and natural flavours, with no external intervention or manipulation in the winemaking process.
A serious wine with 5 years lees ageing that had rounded it out to balance the tingling acidity and complement the grapefruit and green apple flavours with a lemon shortbread mellowness. A suitably long finish leaves your mouth watering and keen for another sip to explore the many dimensions of this wine.
Fab by itself, or with oysters, smoked salmon & cream cheese on salted crackers, canapés, lobster or vegan fish and chips
