Jenkyn Place Blanc de Blancs 2015

2015 is the inaugural vintage of Jenkyn Place Blanc de Blancs. Made only from Jenkyn's 8,500 Chardonnay vines, the hand harvested grapes in 2015 were exceptional, with low yields and concentrated fruit giving this sparkling wine weight and complexity. Once transfered to winemaker, Dermot Sugrue's base at Wiston Estate, the bunches of Chardonnay grapes were gently pressed, and fermented in stainless steel before a period of ageing in old Burgundian oak barrels, to add complexity and extra creaminess. The wine then rested for 4 years on its lees, so that it will continue to mature gracefully for many years. The resulting Blanc de Blancs is beautifully fresh, with a sherbet explosion of lemon and verbena, plus Victoria plum and rich, ripe citrus. But as a counterbalance to the citrus, there is a billowing softness and gentle gossamer finish.
