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.
A classic dry sparkling wine with a refined elegance. The colour is pale lemon straw with a steady stream of minute bubbles. It has appealing floral aromas of apple blossom interlaced with ripe melon and constance pear plus a delicate thread of minerality. On the palate the fine mousse marries citrus flavours of grapefruit and Sicilian lemon with a crystalline structure and zesty acidity. The autolytic character is subtle. It has excellent poise and a persistent finish.
This traditional, bottle-fermented, quality sparkling wine is made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. These classic French varieties give this wine a creamy mousse, a fruity and harmonious taste and good length focussed on freshness. After hand-picking, the grapes were whole bunch pressed to obtain the finest juice. Tirage took place after 7 months. The wine was then left to mature on its lees for at least 18 months, with a further 2 months in the bottle after dosage.
