DESCRIPTION

Ulrich Hoffmann, has been a winemaker and consultant for 15 years, working all around the world but primarily in Italy as a consultant. He may have continued with his travels had he not fallen in love with both the Sussex countryside and his now wife, Birgit Rathbone.

After a long, long-distance relationship they have now combined passions and created a boutique sparkling winery that is exclusively focused on quality. The grapes are sourced from the local Sussex region, where the cool climate is perfectly suited to growing the traditional Champagne varietals of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. The wines spend at least three years maturing in bottle on lees, and nothing is released until it is ready.

In the words of winemaker Ulrich himself, “the nose is delightful, with powerful fresh fruit notes with notably ripe citrus fruits. A second nose has pleasant notes of white flowers and peach. On the palate supple, rounded vinosity with excellent freshness. A long and refreshing finish, with notes of nectarines and a pleasant mineral quality.” These are pure and distinctive wines with real finesse, delicious to drink now but with definite ageing potential.

Pair with freshly shucked oysters or a beautiful lemon Dover sole - delicious!
