From the beautiful six-acre vineyard in the South Downs, this wonderfully balanced sparkling wine is aged in bottle for at least four years. It's named in honour of playwright and poet John Agard, a close friend of winemaker Peter Hall. John has lived in Lewes since the 70’s. A great performing poet and playwright with a distinctive Patois, Guyanese Creole intonations, wonderful poems and a range of childrens books. John was awarded The Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry in 2012 and Grace, his wife, was awarded The Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry in 2021. A unique double-achievement!
The wine won Gold at the IEWA and Silver at WineGB where the judges noted, “impressively layered on both palate and nose”. It shows lingering mouthfeel with wonderful balance and a real breath to the finish.
Made froma blend of 65% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir, and 10% Pinot Meunier.
A great partner to smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
