Cinque Ports 2019


SKU: CINQUEPORTS2019 Categories: , ,

A blend of the five white varieties of Champagne; Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Arbanne and Petite Meslier. Elegant and refined, each of the five components were chosen for their subtlety rather than their power. After blending, the wine was aged for nine months in French Fontainebleau barrels with prolonged lees ageing in tank and barrel to add texture and subtlety. A wine of elegance and harmony which shows the incredible potential for English still wines to challenge the world’s most iconic styles. A must-try.

Our Head Winemaker Fergus Elias describes views it as one of his greatest creations. It is drinking superbly now, and will continue to age and develop over the comings years for those who have the patience to resist opening.

The 2019 vintage won Gold at the WineGB 2023 Awards and the wine was described by industry bible, The Buyer, as “one of the ten UK wines to try before you die”.
