Chapel Down Kit's Coty Estate Chardonnay
"Expect aromas of cooked apple and toasted hazelnuts with a background note of butter."
- Kent, United Kingdom
The Kit’s Coty vineyard sits in the sheltered lee of steep chalk hills that rise above keeping cool northerly winds at bay. The expansive southerly aspect ensures the vines capture the sunshine all year long while the warm, free-draining chalk soils provide the perfect terroir for producing well balanced vines and intensely flavoured fruit. Restricting yields and maintaining vine balance allow vines to fulfil their potential, producing fruit that truly express their identity and the unique qualities of the soil. This results in wines of purity, intensity and complexity.
This is the fourth vintage of thier multi award winning single vineyard Chardonnay. This wild-ferment Chardonnay has been matured on its lees in old French oak for nine months.
"An elegant wine with a beautiful balance of apple and white stone fruits with hints of oak spice. Crisp acidity nicely balances out the richness on the palate. Reminiscent of Chablis in style, a lovely wine!" 96/100 and awarded gold at the International Wine Challenge.
English White Trophy Winner from the International Wine Challenge
"Expect aromas of cooked apple and toasted hazelnuts with a background note of butter. The palate has more fresh apple flavours, a smooth texture and long finish."
