    Hattingley Valley is proud to release its first Classic Reserve – a blend of several vintage wines (18% reserve wines). Grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. 15% of this wine was barrel fermented in old White Burgundy barrels and partial malolactic fermentation took place in order to soften the wine’s natural acidity. After blending the wine underwent secondary fermentation in bottle and spent a minimum of 18 months ageing on its lees and at least five months on cork before release in our cellars add complexity to create our signature style.

    Producer

    Hattingley Valley was established in 2008, when Simon Robinson planted the first south-facing site. He and “extraordinarily talented” (says Matthew Jukes) winemaker Emma Rice then planned the modern, eco-friendly winery in Wield, which was completed in 2010. It released its first wine in August 2013, and a year later was declared to have made the world's finest vintage rosé in the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships. These wines have bright, clear, crisp fruit, a subtly fragrant hedgerow tone and searing acidity in seamless balance. Barrel ferments and lees ageing are judged perfectly for texture, complexity and overall integration. Jancis Robinson justly cites Hattingley Valley as one of the producers that “have really put English vineyards on the world wine map”. It’s our pleasure to give Australia a taste of this English idyll.

    Region

    Hampshire is a varied landscape with elevations up to near 300m above sea level, home to the magnificent New Forest, South downs and marsh land. Hampshire is home to a handful of vineyards who are exploring, with wonderful success, the possibilities of British Sparkling wine. Production of sparking wine follows the traditional methods of nearby Champagne - and Hampshire vignerons benefit from similar chalky soil to its more famous french cousin as well as the wamer & sunnier climate conditions of the south coast of England. Look towards East Hampshire, the New Forest & South downs for producers such as the now world-famous Hattingley Valley amongst others.
