Black Chalk Classic English Sparkling Wine
This product is currently sold out.
Black Chalk is a labour of love from award-winning winemaker Jacob Leadley and family, with the eagerly-awaited inaugural 2015 vintage wines released in April 2018.
Truly exceptional fruit is sourced entirely from vineyards in Hampshire, a quintessentially English landscape Jacob knows well, having been making world-class sparkling wines at Hattingley Valley since 2011, with an unusual dominance of Pinot Meunier, a red grape the winemaker Jacob believes is particularly suited to the local climate.
Black Chalk Classic sparkling wine has prominent fruit throughout thanks to the high proportion of Pinot Meunier, backed up by impressively complex layers of autolysis and a rich underbelly from the barrel component, still with the now classic English characteristics of green apple and floral notes, a hint of very floral honey on the finish. A classy aperitif, or serve with smoked seafood or Brie.
