Henners Brut Reserve
This product is currently sold out.
When it comes to English wine there’s a lot to shout about, not least the stunning sparkling wines from Henners. Based just 4 miles from the sea in Herstmonceux, East Sussex, the 10-acre vineyard was created in 2007 by ex-Formula One engineer, Lawrence Warr. Planted with traditional champagne varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the vines thrive in an idyllic microclimate created by the vineyard’s proximity of the sea, low altitude (only 24 masl) and steep sunny south facing slopes. All Henners wines are hand-crafted from start to finish; with separate fermenting of varietals and their vine clones to allow a broader range of wines for final blending, extended lees ageing for added complexity, and holding back of all bottles for at least 4 years prior to release to add depth and richness. Henners – exclusive English Sparkling Wines are of the finest quality. Crafted with every attention to detail, they are a perfect accompaniment to any occasion.
Henners Reserve sparkling wine is platinum award winning! Concentrated nose with frangipane, vanilla and pear. The palate is biscuity and honeyed with a fine, persistent creamy mousse. The finish is long and very elegant with beautifully poised acidity. An elegant aperitif wine - or fantastic accompaniment to celebrations.
