About This Wine...
Albourne Estate is a family-owned boutique vineyard and winery overlooking the beautiful South Downs, just 8 miles from Brighton. They craft small quantities of exciting and distinctive still and sparkling Sussex wines using only their own carefully grown hand-picked grapes.
This “white of whites” is made from selected hand-picked Chardonnay grapes using the highest quality cuvée to create a sparkling wine which is all about elegance, finesse and subtle complexity. Moving on from the very successful 2013, the 2014 vintage offers a fuller and richer, textured style with the same characteristic aromas of baked apple and pastry.
