Bluebell Vineyard Estates Hindleap Blanc De Blancs 2016
|Country/Region||United Kingdom, Sussex|
Our signature wine, only the finest Chardonnay grapes are selected for our Blanc de Blancs.
Light golden in colour, with vivid, fine bubbles, this wine has tropical lychee and pineapple aromas on the nose giving way to deliciously youthful flavours of white melon, kiwi fruit and mandarin on the palate creating a vibrant finish.
This wine has a balanced acidity which works beautifully as an aperitif with olives and smoked nuts or fish dishes such as fritto misto.Winemaking

Established on the site of a former pig farm, the transition from swine to vine began as a hobby: the creation of a fine wine collection, an eye opening visit to Romaneé Conti in France and the belief that truly exceptional wines can be produced in England. The site, once home to thousands of Large Whites, Landrace and Blue Cross Pigs is now home to over 100,000 vines growing premium quality Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier vines along with Seyval Blanc, Bacchus, Ortega, Chasselas and Merlot.
Since our first plantings in 2005, the vineyard has more than doubled in size and we now have nearly 100 acres under-vine stretching across East and West Sussex.
