About the Wine
This sparkling white wine is made by Greyfriars in England. A wonderful accompaniment to seafood or canapés featuring duck or beetroot. Formed from primarily Chardonnay grapes, this wine is ethically produced. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark. Supplied by Greyfriars Vineyard.
Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.
- Green Apple
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
Greyfriars’ approach is very focused and simple: grow great grapes on a great site and let them express themselves in the winery. The south-facing chalk slopes of the Hog’s Back provide the perfect terroir for producing world class sparkling wine and Greyfriars farms sustainably with minimal chemical inputs and restrict yields to boost quality and ripeness. Their winemaking philosophy is about minimal intervention; let the flavour of the fruit do the talking.
Our national vineyards are growing and thriving and this is an exciting time for the burgeoning industry with 2018 being a record year and forecasts set to grow to production of 40 million bottles by 2040.Explore England
