Albourne Estate Sandstone Ridge 2018

£14.99

12.0% ABV
Honeysuckle, jasmine & peach, fresh coconut & vanilla with just a touch of white pepper spice

A chardonnay-led blend offering a perfectly-balanced fuller wine than is typical in England, making it highly flexible as a solo or food matching wine. Hand-selected grapes and contact with young second-fill French oak barrels has enhanced the overall mouthfeel & complexity of this wine and supports the exotic array of aromas from honeysuckle, jasmine & peach to fresh coconut & vanilla with just a touch of white pepper spice. Alison Nightingale began her working life in multi-national marketing before changing to a more creative, fulfilling and balanced path, setting up Albourne Estate. She selected the site of the vineyard not only for its stunning views of the South Downs, but for its slope, aspect, altitude and geology: tracing the beautiful south-facing slope of a low ridge created by underlying Cretaceous green sandstone. These features provide excellent drainage, low frost risk and maximum sun exposure. Albourne grow seven grape varieties planted across multiple clones and rootstock.
