Citrus zest aromas layered with honey and nuts, creamy oak, baked apples and marzipan

With an attractive pale golden colour and fine mousse, Hattingley Valley’s Kings Cuvée has vibrant citrus zest aromas layered with honey and nuts, all smoothly integrated with creamy oak, baked apples and marzipan. Deep and rich, yet refreshing on the palate with bright, crisp acidity and a long, complex finish. A very limited release, the Kings Cuvée is a premium blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, 100% barrel fermented and then aged for seven months in old oak barrels, resulting in a much softer, creamier and spicier wine. Hattingley were spoilt for choice when it came to selecting the absolute best barrels for this prestige wine, thanks to the exceptional 2014 vintage. Once bottled, the wine aged for fifty-two months on lees allowing the development of its complex toasty character. A small dosage of 4g/L was added after disgorgement to balance the wine’s bright acidity. This vintage won the accolade of ‘Supreme Champion’ at the WineGB awards, so it’s the best sparkling wine made in the UK, by one measure at least! Hattingley Valley uses the latest technology and equipment from continental Europe, has sophisticated waste disposal facilities and was the first UK winery to adopt solar power. The vines are nurtured throughout the growing year with an environmentally-sensitive approach to viticulture ensuring optimum ripeness, yield and quality of fruit.
