Court Garden Sparkling Ditchling Quartet Brut
A really rich, flavoursome sparkling wien from Sussex from the wonderful 2014 vinatge. A large proportion of the grapes were aged in barrel and when bottled the wine was left to develop before release. This long aging on the lees has ensured a rich, but still fruity balance. Delicious nose of honeycomb, apple and brioche – really nice bubbles and balance. The wine is 70% Pinot Noir with some Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier.
Court Garden is a family-run, single-estate vineyard in Ditchling, in Sussex. It is mainly planted with the traditional Champagne varieties of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, with Pinot Gris, Ortega, Dornfelder and Rondo for the still whites. Their wiens are really well made.
