Despite challenging weather conditions, the 2021 vintage was deemed to be surprisingly good. The early spring was unusually warm and wet, followed by chilly April and May weather with frosts. July delivered some much needed heat, while August was cool enough to delay the harvest. While the growing season was tricky, the grapes harvested were aromatic with crisp acidity.

What The Critics Say...

James Suckling 89 points rating
Sliced apples, grapefruit, pears and biscuits on the nose. It’s balanced and fruit-forward with a medium body, bright acidity and soft bubbles. Easygoing. Drink now.
