The original Gusbourne Estate in Appledore, Kent dates back to 1410. In 2004, Andrew Weeber took over the estate and the first vines were planted that same year. The vineyard benefits from a mild climate with an abundance of sunshine. Special parcels of estate grown Chardonnay grapes were carefully selected and hand-picked before gentle destemming and pressing. The wine is then barrel fermented and aged in French oak for 10months before bottling.
Aromas of orange blossom and lemon, lead to a palate that has ripe apple freshness with nuances of vanilla, butter and toast. A very well balanced example of the Chardonnay family.
This will go well with meat and cheese dishes but is also a delight to drink on its own.
