Tasting Notes

A delicate pale pink with lively bubbles. Redcurrant aromas give way to a hint of shortbread on the nose. Vibrant strawberry flavours complement the toasty notes developed from ageing on the lees in bottle. The wine has excellent acidity giving it a refreshing finish.



Established in 2008, Hattingley Valley planted its first 11 hectare south-facing site on a VSP (vertical shoot positioning) trellis system with Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir. Situated on clay loam over chalk bedrock and using extensive canopy management throughout the season, it provides excellent growing conditions to produce high quality, hand picked fruit.

Vintage information

2011 saw record-breaking temperatures in September and October, resulting in fantastically ripe fruit and an outstanding harvest thanks to the long Indian summer.



After the grapes were harvested and sorted, 25% of the total blend was barrel fermented in old Burgundy barrels, giving the wine lovely texture and richness. The wine then spent seven months on its fermentation lees, with no stirring or addition of sulphur dioxide and occasional topping up.  Final blending occurred in July 2012 before filtration and bottling. The wine then spent 18 months ageing on its lees.


Hattingley Valley was established by ex-solicitor Simon Robinson, who discovered that the soils on his farmland were ideal for grape growing and realised his dream by planting his first vines in 2008...


Along with the classic varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, he added a nursery with another 3000 vines of different grape varieties and rootstocks in order to determine the best matches of grape variety for the site.  The newly built winery is eco-friendly, being the first in the UK to use solar power and an innovative way of dealing with the winery’s effluent. The winery’s waste water flows downhill to where a Bio-Bubble aerobic digester is buried. It cleanses the waste water through the use of living bacteria and the resultant water is clean and potable.  This forward thinking and experimental approach makes Hattingley Valley an exciting new English producer to watch.
