Description

All the wines from Black Chalk are labours of love: award-winning winemaker Jacob Leadley and family produce wines made with top-quality grapes picked only from vineyards on the chalk downlands of Hampshire. This award-winning Champagne-style sparkling wine is made in small batches using the three classic Champagne varieties: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.

Why is it called Black Chalk? As Jacob Leadley explains: ‘Black Chalk was used by the old masters to sketch ideas onto canvas before painstakingly creating a masterpiece. At Black Chalk Wines, we hand select the very best locally grown grapes before beautifully crafting each wine, they are not rushed but allowed time to age in order to produce English sparkling wine that stands out from the crowd.’

This wine is everything you would expect from a top-quality sparkling wine: aromas and flavours of green apple with floral notes and a hint of floral honey on the finish, together with traces of brioche and vanilla. The use of oak barrels and time on lees provide this wine with depth and complexity. The result is a fruit driven, perfectly balanced, crisp English sparkling wine.

‘I reckon this is one of the best UK sparklers out there. So delicate with purity and balance. World class.’ Jamie Goode, December 2018

Savour this wine on its own, or with shellfish and fish.
