Henners Vintage is crafted only in exceptional years, such as 2014, when winemaker Collette O'Leary believes the concentration, ripeness and maturity of fruit will deliver an exceptional wine for extended ageing.

This vintage is blended from 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. The Chardonnay delivers excellent structure and vibrancy, while the Pinot Noir brings body and depth to deliver great roundness on the palate. The wine has spent 4 years on lees before release.

It is deliciously biscuity and creamy with honey aromas and beautifully poised acidity, all finished with just a hint of salinity.

Henners is based just 4 miles from the sea in Herstmonceux, East Sussex, the 7 acre vineyard was created in 2007 by ex-Formula One engineer, Lawrence Warr. The winery was named in honour of Larry's French ancestor, Henners Dubois, who was forced to flee Paris for England during the French Revolution in the in the late 18th Century. The wines are hand-crafted by talented winemaker Collette O'Leary; with separate fermenting of varietals to give a broad range of wines for final blending.

Collette studied Viticulture & Oenology at the UK’s prestigious Plumpton College and then worked in wineries in New Zealand, California and South Africa to hone her winemaking skills. When she joined Henners, Collette could immediately see the potential in Sussex for growing extraordinary winemaking grapes, particularly where the Henners hectares are nestled in the South Downs.

Sussex, England

Sussex has a warm climate and soil types similar to Champagne. Champagne lies on the 49th parallel north while the Sussex Weald lies on the 51st parallel north. Sussex has many south-facing slopes, which are suitable for growing the grape varieties found in sparkling wine, such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Sparkling Blend

The grapes, most commonly Chardonnay, Pinot noir and Pinot meunier, are used to make several base wines that are assembled together to make Champagne, English Sparkling wine and other classic cuvée wines.

Champagne blends can also include Arbane, Petit Meslier, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris. Other appelations have rules about which grapes can be included.
