Hattingley Valley, the family-owned Hampshire winery, has added its first-ever white wine to its collection of award-winning of English sparkling wines. The 2020 Chardonnay joins the brand’s STILL By Hattingley rangethat includes a 2019 Rosé and 2016 Pinot Noir, both released last year.
Available online from 1st April (RRP £19.50), the new release is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes. Pale lemon in colour with a soft green hue, this young and vibrant Chardonnay has wonderfully pronounced citrus, blossom and grapefruit aromas, with a hint of honey and pear. The palate is clean and fresh, with green apple flavours, and a creamy texture that is nicely balanced with its natural vibrant bright acidity. A fine and rich mouthfeel, with a long dry finish, the Chardonnay is perfect for alfresco drinking, pairing beautifully with barbecued monkfish or chicken – a crowd-pleaser when entertaining in our gardens this spring/summer.
Also new to Hattingley’s range, and a delicious choice for those impending big celebrations with friends and family, is the Blanc de Blancs 2014 (RRP £47.50), and 2017 sparkling rosé (RRP £36). These fantastic English sparkling wines join the winery’s signature Classic Reserve (RRP £30), and King’s Cuvée 2014 (RRP £80), that was voted Best Sparkling Wine in the UK 2020.
The STILL Chardonnay (RRP £19.50) is available to purchase from 1st April 2021 from www.hattingleyvalley.com. The Blanc de Blancs 2014 will be available from mid-March.
