Furleigh Estate Blanc de Blancs 2016
Furleigh Estate Blanc de Blancs 2016
Bronze Medal - Decanter World Wine Awards. The Sparkling style of Blanc de Blancs (using only white grapes) is arguably England's finest expression of Sparkling Wine, and this highly rated Blanc de Blancs 2014 from Furleigh Estate in Dorset offers great value where English Sparkling can be on the touch expensive side. Dry, elegant and beautifully refreshing, this is drinking wonderfully now, but will continue to age gracefully.
An elegant white sparkling wine with crystalline features. Beautiful pale lemon with lots of tiny bubbles.
It has attractive floral aromas of acacia, elderflower and citrus blossom along with Sicilian lemons and chalky minerality.
The palate is crisp, dry and exceedingly refreshing with flavours of freshly squeezed lemons, grapefruit, lemongrass and salty minerality on the finish. It shows very pure varietal expression with exquisitely refined structure and definite poise.

About the Producer
Furleigh Estate is 85 acres of vineyard, lakes and grazing land surrounded by woodland near Bridport, Dorset. The area is teaming with wildlife; buzzards fly overhead; deer, pheasants and partridge roam the vineyard, while heron fish regularly from the lakes to which the resident geese return each Spring.
Four years of careful planning and investment has transformed the former dairy farm into a modern and productive vineyard and winery.
A 5,000 square foot winery was built in 2007. This now accommodates a specialist pneumatic press, designed to carry out the very gentle whole bunch pressing required for quality sparkling wines. Temperature controlled stainless steel tanks from Italy and Germany, oak barrels from Cognac and riddling and dosage machinery from Epernay in the Champagne region of France complete the major equipment.
A temperature controlled cellar provides the ideal conditions to store and mature sparkling wines on their lees, so as to develop the best flavours and mousse possible.
