Chapel Down Kit’s Coty Chardonnay 2018

£30.00

13.5% ABV
Rich aromas of white peach with apple and apricot leading to a fresh finish

This is the 6th vintage to be released of Chapel Down’s multi award winning single vineyard Chardonnay. This wild-ferment Chardonnay has been matured on its lees in old French oak for nine months. Expect aromas of cooked apple and toasted hazelnuts with a background note of butter. The palate has more fresh apple flavours, a smooth texture and long finish.

Kit’s Coty vineyard is a 95 acre vineyard on the North Downs of Kent. The southerly aspect ensures the vines capture the sunshine all year long while the warm, free draining chalk soils provide the perfect terroir for producing well balanced, intensely flavoured fruit. Restricting yields and maintaining vine balance allow vines to fulfil their potential, producing fruit that truly express their identity and the unique qualities of the soil. Harvested by hand in October, grapes are whole bunch pressed before undergoing wild fermentation in old French oak barrels for nine months adding complexity and richness to the wine.
