Back in 1999 Paul Langham was bored of working in the corporate world and one Saturday in June 1999, while drinking a glass of wine, he said out of the blue to his wife Lynn: “We must be able to do this” – and that is how their whole adventure in English Wine started. Lynn was able to find the right land in the right location and in April 2001 they planted their first vines and harvested their first vintage in 2003. The vineyard now extends to over 11 acres. This wonderful Chardonnay builds upon the traits and characteristics of their 2014 and 2016 but offers greater depth reflecting more mature vines and the great weather of 2018. Their 2018 Chardonnay is made from burgundy clone vines. The Langhams decided not to oak the wine as part of the wine making process and the results justify the decision. The wine has lovely nuances of peach, melon and honey and a slightly flinty backbone, with excellent balancing acidity.
