Win A Bottle Of Highweald Brut Reserve
We're delighted to offer a bottle of this beautiful sparkling wine courtesy of Highweald Wine Of England - this month we're offering a delightful brut reserve...
Highweald Wine Estate was established in 2016, with the planting of 120,000 vines in the beautiful Sussex High Weald, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With an ambition to create the finest sparkling wine with no compromises, they produced their first crop in 2018.
Committed to quality from the first step of the journey, their first release was awarded Best Wine in First Year of Production, as well as the English Sparkling Trophy and the Non-Vintage English Sparkling Trophy at the 2022 International Wine Challenge.
Their vineyard soils, originally laid down when Sussex was sub-tropical, are what remains of the ancient Weald-Artois Anticline. This now-eroded dome stretched from south-east England deep into France, and today is topped by the geologically younger Chalk ridges forming the North and South Downs on either side.
The silts, sands and clays are residues of sedimentation and fluvial erosion, and they shape the land in a series of imposing ridges and stunning valleys.
Light straw in colour with a fine persistent mousse, this signature brut reserve is elegant with aromas of orchard and citrus fruit, toast and spice.
On the palate, the Chardonnay dominance brings delightful freshness and length. The Pinots add depth and structure, and wonderful aromatic complexity.
We've now got a bottle to give away - just enter our random draw before the closing date on Friday March 1. Best of luck!
