Harrow & HopeHarrow & Hope Brut Reserve NV

12.00% ABV
Biscuity, lemony, with a hint of apricot and a long creamy finish

This latest release of Harrow & Hope’s signature blend has been created from all three classic grape varieties, led by the pure fruit and texture of Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier and well supported by the finesse of Chardonnay. Their 5th Edition bottling is based on the 2016 vintage, supported with 20% reserves (10% 2015 and 10% 2014), aged in old oak barriques. The reserves really help to soften this wine and add extra complexity. Being based on 2016 it was the only wine Harrow & Hope made that year as they lost 65% of their crop to frost. Annoyingly for them it turned out to be a great year but they simply didn’t have the volume to make any other wines. 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. WineGB Gold medal winner 2019 & 2020.

www.jancisrobinson.com tasting note: “Toasty, full and generous with loads of stewed-apple fruit and a touch of sweet spice. Fragrant finish with a touch of blossom and cream. Another (increasingly rare) example of great value ESW. 17/20” (Richard Hemming)
