Description

Davenport Vineyards Limney Estate Sparkling Wine

Davenport Vineyards Limney Estate Sparkling Wine is made from Pinot Noir and Auxerrois grown on the vineyard at Rotherfield. This wine is aged on lees for 3 years and has a dry balance. There is a touch of smoke on the nose with an apple crumble character coming through. The yeasty flavours on the palate are balanced superbly by the strong Pinot Noir character which shows ripe strawberries and a limey fresh quality.

Their sparkling wines (like the Davenport Vineyards Limney Estate Sparkling Wine) are low sulphites wines, preserving aromas and authenticity of the grapes.

All Davenport Vineyards wines are suitable for vegan diets. No animal products are used in the winery.

Will Davenport is one of the UK’s few organic grape growers and winemakers. He trained at Roseworthy College in Australia and worked in vineyards in Alsace, California and Australia before planting his first vines in Kent in 1991.

Each vineyard is selected for its own particular character: the soil is loamy over sandstone in the Limney vineyard with very good drainage and a high iron content with low yields. The west facing fairly steep slope is ideal for the late ripening grapes because it has exposure to the sun until late in the day.

Organic grapes are grown without chemical fertilisers, weed killers, insecticides and using only a very limited range of fungicides.

The aim is to get as close as possible to a natural environment and cause less pollution into the water, soil and air around the vineyard (and then into the wider environment).

By focussing on care for the soil in the vineyard the vines have a balance and health that cannot come from the use of chemicals.

In the winery Will Davenport follows Soil Association standards, which meet and exceed the EU organic winemaking regulations that were introduced in 2013. On top of this they have their own way of making wines which are designed to maximise the flavours and character of the grapes.

They indeed avoid the use of bought-in yeast, and they do not fine their wines, and many are bottled without filtration.

Sulphur dioxide, used to prevent oxidation of the wine, is added to the wine but levels are kept to well below the organic limit (which is half the level allowed in non-organic wines).

Their sparkling wines in particular, like the Davenport Vineyards Limney Estate Sparkling Wine, have very low sulphite levels, a factor which may be of interest to anyone with a sensitivity to sulphur (such as some asthmatics).

Spagnol Prosecco DOCG Frizzante Lo Spago 2020

The colour is bright straw yellow and it has the light and soft perlage typical of Frizzante wines. The nose senses a bouquet of apple and floral notes of acacia and wisteria. The taste is fresh and very typical, with good acidity balanced by tatantalizing sapidity or an almost salty minerality. This wine is closely linked to the traditions of this territory and characterised by the typical “twine knot”. The cork is fixed to the bottle neck with twine, a procedure which is still done today by hand, just as it has been done for generations by the farming families of this area.

Classic straw yellow colour. Fine, persistent and delicate bubbles. The bouquet has perfumes and aromas ranging from fruit (pear, apple) to flowers (acacia, elderflower).

This all gives the impression of a drier wine, but incredibly smooth and well balanced on the palate. From Spagnols family vineyards, low sulphite and suitable for vegans, an excellent value for money. A real artisan Prosecco, for a real Prosecco lover!

Bollinger Special Reserve

Special Cuvee is made from a majority of reserve wines fermented either in mature oak casks or small stainless steel tanks depending on the characteristics and fundamental potential of the base wines. A significant part of the reserve wines have been fermented in mature oak barrels before being transferred into magnums, which are then stored under cork in Bollinger’s cellars for as long as 12 to 15 years, with a minimum of 5. Blended some years later with the other base wines, coming from the two latest harvests in proportions which can change from one year to another, they impart the final blend with an inimitable and unrivalled consistency and majesty.
