This English sparkling wine uses only the finest Pinot Noir grapes from the Calancombe Estate. The grapes were all hand harvested from a single plot at the 23 acre vineyard near Modbury in South Devon.

The wine has been made using the Great British Classic Method (known as Méthode Traditionnelle in Champagne). The grapes were gently whole bunch pressed to extract top quality juice. The fermentation took place over 7 months in stainless steel and then in bottles for its second fermentation. It was aged on its lees for 2 years.

English Sparkling Wine 

This has produced a delicious English sparkling wine with a deep gold colour with long lasting fine bubbles. It has a lovely balance from its nose with hints of strawberries and citrus to its delicate long finish with touches of, cream, baked apple and gentle spices.

This English sparkler would make the perfect aperitif and a great accompaniment to canapés such as smoked salmon blinis and gougères.

Pinot Noir

When made well, Pinot Noir shines. When young it has delicious aromas of cherries, raspberries, and strawberries.

As the wine ages, it will develop complexity and mystery. It has the capacity to become a gamey style of wine. It will show notes of autumn, truffles and mushrooms, especially when originating from the top vineyards of Burgundy.

Devon, England

Devon's vineyards are situatued in the valleys and lowlands of south and east Devon. Mostly close to the rivers Exe, Teign and Dart.

The growing season is long, with sun and heat starting earlier and lasting longer than in many other English counties. This gives the grapes more time to ripen and more time to hang.

Calancombe Estate

Blessed with a unique microclimate, south-facing slopes and free draining soil, the Calancombe Estate is ideally suited for wine production.

After taking advice from a leading viticulturist, planting of the first parcel of vines commenced in 2013. Total plantings now extend to 23 acres making the Estate the largest in South Devon that produces its own wines and one of the larger estates in the country.
