Hattingley Valley is proud to release its first Classic Reserve – a blend of several vintage wines (18% reserve wines). Grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. 15% of this wine was barrel fermented in old White Burgundy barrels and partial malolactic fermentation took place in order to soften the wine’s natural acidity. After blending the wine underwent secondary fermentation in bottle and spent a minimum of 18 months ageing on its lees and at least 5 months on cork before release in our cellars add complexity to create our signature style.
Food Pairing: This is the perfect aperitif or celebration drink, it is the flawless accompaniment to any party, enjoyed with any canapé.
Tasting Notes: P vibrant baked apple, creamy nougat and brioche notes on the nose, supported by a hint of toast and fresh red fruit. With notes of soft lemon sherbet on the palate, the wine has a beautiful weight from partial oak fermentation of the base wine.
