It's been suggested that the changing climate will make South Devon the new Burgundy. As the temperature warms, classic Burgundian grapes such as Chardonnay are ripening perfectly in these slightly more northern environments,

Ben and Lucy Holland would never claim to be copying the French. Their desire is to make wines which are distincitvely Devonian (although one could argue that is what the French term "terroir" is all about, making wines which are of their place).

There is no denying though, that Huxbear "The Dancing Bear" Chardonnay has echoes of the Mâconnais. It is made from 100% Chardonnay and has been aged in oak barrels.

The colour is pale yellow. The nose is peach, honeydew melon and pineapple. On the palate it is smooth and balanced, with further notes of stone fruits, cinammon, butter and coconut.

Served very slightly chilled (too cold and the flavours are lost). Ideal with roasted chicken.
