Jack O’ The Green Chardonnay 2018

£13.99

10.5% ABV
Green apple, elderflower, stone fruit and hints of hazelnut, a long finish and elegant minerality

This has lovely aromas of green apple and elderflower which leads on to a clean and elegant palate. On the palate the crunchy apple notes give way to stone fruit and hints of hazelnut to produce a wine with lovely concentration, a long finish and elegant minerality.

The grapes for this Chardonnay come from Oxney Estate, who have the largest holdings of organic vineyards in England. After the grapes are harvested by hand and vinified at Oxney Estate, they are transported down the road to Tillingham Winery where they are bottled. These wines are ready in time for the Jack O’ The Green celebrations in May, and this custom is beautifully depicted on the labels, with Jack topped with an intricate crown of flora.

Produced from organically grown grapes (wine is not certified), from vineyards in the heart of the East Sussex countryside situated on a fine sand and silt loam – above clay bedrock. Adjacent to an oak forest providing natural wind protection and helping to create near perfect conditions for growing high-quality grapes. Winemaking – Hand-picked in mid October, then whole-bunch pressed and fermented in old oak (50% using wild yeasts) with periodic lees stirring.
