Gremillet Champagne Brut
Bride Valley, Dorset Crémant
This wine has a fresh light yellow colour touched with hints of lemon. The continuous pin-prick bubbles show the bottle fermented effervescence. The Crémant has a much less aggressive fizz and because of this it gently slides onto the palate which a fantastic creamy expression which is then backed by hints of white flowers and white summer fruits.
Specific clones were selected on the advice of Pierre-Marie Guillaume, the owner of France's top nursery in Charcenne (east of Dijon). After intense analysis, seven Chardonnay clones (55% of the plantings), four Pinot Noir clones (25%) and two Meunier clones (20%) were selected. The vines are planted on south and south west facing slopes. In addition, 1,000 Italian Alder trees were planted to act as a natural windbreak to the breezes coming from the Jurassic Coast, four miles to the south. Bride Valley has been sustainably farmed for centuries and although the grapes are not certified organic, the vineyard continues to follow organic principles.
The first English "Crémant" is a blend of the 2015 and 2016 vintages, produced from the Champagne trio of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Meunier. The wine was initially fermented in stainless steel, then transferred to bottle for the second fermentation according to the traditional method. It has shorter lees ageing, lower pressure, and a slightly higher dosage than other Bride Valley wines to produce a creamy texture worthy of the name.
Steven Spurrier and his wife Arabella are behind Bride Valley, located in West Dorset. Steven, while running Les Caves de la Madeleine and L'Academie du Vin in Paris in the 1980s, had soil (chalky) samples from Arabella's 80 hectare estate tested and the results came back: "very similar to Champagne". This is not surprising because the village of Kimmeridge is just 24 miles as the crow flies from Bride Valley. After two decades and three visits from Boisset's sparkling wine expert, Georges Legrand, vines were planted on the best sites in the bowl of the amphitheatre-like estate. Three hectares were planted in 2009, rising to a total of 10 hectares in 2013 when planting was completed.
Rathfinny Wine Estate, Classic Cuvée Brut East Sussex
Rathfinny’s Classic Cuvée displays vivid aromas of grapefruit, red apple and brioche on the nose. The palate has real focus with zesty acidity tempered by the wine’s creamy texture and rich, biscuity notes, leading to a refreshing and moreish finish.
2017 was an exceptional vintage, but not without its challenges. Fortunately, the south facing aspect and proximity to the coast, protected Rathfinny’s estate vineyards from the late spring frost. After an early budburst the grapes benefitted from a long ripening period and a phenomenal ‘Indian summer’, with unseasonably warm September weather producing ripe fruit, with concentrated flavours and balanced acidity and sugar levels.
This family-owned estate was established in 2010 by Mark and Sarah Driver, with the first vineyards being planted in April 2012. Rathfinny’s estate vineyard now extends to over 93 hectares in the South Downs, just three miles from the Channel. Lying on a south-facing slope, their estate vineyard is predominantly planted with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier as well as small plantings of Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris. The site benefits from a semi-continental maritime climate and free-draining chalk soils, providing the ideal conditions to ripen grapes. Rathfinny uses only estate-grown fruit for their four traditional-method sparkling wines: Classic Cuvée, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs and Rosé, as well as their still white wine. Each of their wines is produced and labelled as a vintage wine.
Lunetta Prosecco Rosé Extra Dry
An appealing, and delicately fruity, extra dry Prosecco Rosé.
GLERA 90%, PINOT NOIR 10%
The colour is an appealing pink with cherry-coloured hints. Fresh berry aromas and a fine mousse lead to redcurrant and citrus notes on the palate, balanced by bright acidity and a clean, dry finish.

Then the wine is blended with Pinot Nero (which is vinified as for red wine) - giving an appealing rosé colour. After blending the wine undergoes a second, temperature-controlled, fermentation in stainless steel tanks and on lees - before bottling and release.
Crémant du Jura Rosé
Tucked between the foothills of the Alps and Burgundy, the Jura is France's moct confidential vineyard region. It is also responsible for some of the country's most individual wines.
