Davenport Vineyards Limney Estate 2015

£26.99

11.50% ABV
Exquisite balance of fruit and acid, ripe lemon and red apple flavours

Davenport’s premium English Sparkling Wine, made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. With 5 years maturing in the bottle on lees, it has plenty of yeast character combined with the surprisingly youthful fruit. This is a wine that is delicious now and will develop further over the long term. The flavours are of citrus, apple and hazelnuts with a dry balance and great length of flavour. In 1991 Will Davenport planted 5 acres of vines at Horsmonden in Kent, while simultaneously working for a Hampshire vineyard and, unintentionally, this became the beginning of a life-long business as a wine producer. Over 25 years later the vineyards now make up 24 acres, grown on 5 parcels of land, 9 grape varieties and a multitude of soil types and micro-climates. The vineyards are mostly at Horsmonden in Kent, with a smaller vineyard next to the winery at Rotherfield, East Sussex. Will has always been a keen supporter of organic farming and in 2000 he made the decision to convert all the vines and winery to organic systems, certified by the Soil Association. At the time this was a huge risk, but ultimately the vines are in great shape, the fruit quality is second to none, and the wines show a depth of character that Davenport believe could not be achieved with the use of chemicals in the vineyard and winery.
