A unique wine was bottled today at Hush Heath. The sparkling wine is made from six of the grape varieties allowed in Champagne. As well as the classic trio of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier this assemblage includes Arbane, Petite Mesilier and Pinot Blanc, together they make up 35% of the blend which all comes from the Middle Strackney Wood vineyard on the Kent estate. It tastes quite different to a traditional blend, more fragrant perhaps?
Anyway the proof will be in the drinking – maybe this time next year?
