Harrow & Hope’s single-vineyard sits on an ancient Thames gravel terrace. Being quite central and away from the coast the vineyard experiences high summer day temperatures with cooler nights that preserve precious acidity. 2015 was a naturally small crop of tiny, concentrated Chardonnay bunches, and it really shows in the wine with ripe characters and a focused structure that makes this a real sensual experience. With 50% fermented in aged oak barrels and then aged on lees for 4 years, longer than any other wine Harrow & Hope have released, there is a lot going on here; the exciting part will be watching these layers unfold over the many years this wine has ahead of it. As a wine, it has great balance, elegance and that lovely creamy, toasty texture that is a hallmark of well-aged Blanc de Blancs.
