Sugrue 'Cuvée Boz' Blanc de Blancs 2015

Grapes for the Sugrue South Downs 'Cuvée Boz' Blanc de Blancs come from the Jenkyn Place single vineyard, nestled in the Hampshire Downs. In 2015, a small crop was produced due to poor weather at flowering. However, warm, dry and sunny weather during September produced excellent conditions for healthy, ripe fruit with wonderfully concentrated flavours. The Chardonnay grapes were carefully selected and whole-bunch pressed to obtain the juice, which was fermented with selected yeasts in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The secondary fermentation took place in the bottle, as per the traditional Champagne method with full malolactic. Dosage was 9 grams per litre. 'Cuvée Boz' is a complex and harmonious vintage English sparkling wine, showing aromas of green apple and subtle hints of lemon thyme. Beautifully balanced and poised on the palate, which offers good weight and notes of citrus peel, orange zest and delicate hints of strawberry through to an elegant finish.
