Fragrant peach notes, a flinty backbone and a hint of ginger in this well-structured wine

The vineyards of Denbies Estate are situated on the North Downs, in the town of Dorking, with its famous chalky soil, in a protected valley of south-facing slopes (AONB). A total of 265 acres out of the 700-acre estate have been planted to vine, commencing in 1986. Denbies’ Surrey Gold NV is a deep lemon in colour with gold tints. A pronounced floral, honeysuckle and peach infused nose leads to a well-structured palate, with citrus and stone fruits. There is a pleasing flinty backbone to the wine and hints of spice on the finish. The fruit was sourced from the lower slopes, with its sandy limestone and perfect for elegant, refreshing wines. With harvesting taking place in September and October, it ensured that the vineyard could fully benefit from the early autumn sun. The very clear juice was obtained, which was fermented at a low temperature to obtain maximum fruit characteristics from the grapes. The residual sugar level of the wine means that it is medium-dry in style.
