I feel very fortunate to be a winemaker in England. The industry here is still in its infancy compared to other more established regions and so with every vintage we discover more about our terroir.Josh Donaghay-Spire - Winemaker
When Josh Donaghay-Spire first started studying wine at the WSET he was amazed by the amount of complex chemistry behind it.
The more he learnt, the more he realised how much he didn't know. He found it very inspiring and his thirst for knowledge grew as he was getting dipper into his studies..
As a winemaker, he believes it is fundamental to understand the vineyards and the chemistry of the fruit and wines.
Freshness and vibrancy are key features he looks for in wines and Josh finds that English fruit really delivers on this, whether it be unique aromatic white wines, classic fizz, or a twist on a rich Chablis-esque Chardonnay.
An elegant unoaked Chardonnay with aromas of ripe apple, peach and pineapple. A rich buttery white wine whilst retaining delicious purity of fruit and crisp acidity.
Compare this wine to riper Chablis styles or an unoaked New Zealand Chardonnay.
Ideal for enjoying with seafood or poultry.
Drink now until 2020, the wine will continue to develop in complexity during this time.
