Jenkyn Place Sparkling Wine

Jenkyn Place Brut 2009:

The near-perfect growing season of 2009 has produced a Jenkyn Place Cuvée which in many ways represents a true single vineyard wine. The wine, a blend of 65% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier, is fascinatingly complex, yet quite simple at the same time. The core of ripe, creamy orchard fruit is very much in the background. The driving characteristic of the wine is one of distinct mineral energy – a flint-like ‘terroir’ character which suggests a vineyard coming of age and reaching a very particular expression in what was an exceptional vintage. The wine was aged for nearly three years on its lees and the high balancing acidity will ensure that this wine will continue to age brilliantly for many years to come. This is the best Jenkyn Place Cuvée to date.


Jenkyn Place Sparkling Rose 2009:

The 2009 vintage was one of the best ever and we kept back the ripest of the Pinot Noir for late picking at Jenkyn Place to make this delicious sparkling Rosé. The final blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay is now developing beautifully. The initial gently tannic structure of the wine in its early stages has given way to reveal a harmonious pallet of wild strawberry and cherry, with notes of jasmine and violet emerging after some time in the glass. After 3½ years, this wine is just coming into its own and promises to develop even more detail and nuance for several years to come.
