Skye’s Chardonnay is new to our range this year, and is unlike any wine created by our winemakers before. Made exclusively using Burgundy Clones from our Middle Strackney and Old Eight Acre Vineyards at Hush Heath Estate, Chardonnay vines which are valued for producing wines of richness and complexity.
To accentuate the lemon and lime varietal character of the Chardonnay grape the wine is unoaked, yet extended lees ageing and battonage softens the acidity and add layers of texture and a hint of creaminess. A fresh yet complex and beautifully balanced English Chardonnay.

Tasting Note: Aromas of oyster shell, thyme, with a hint of fig combine an underlying backbone of lemon pith with a seasoning of white pepper, pear, lime and Bilberries. A body and texture unlike anything in English wine
Winemaker’s Food Pairing: garden salad with lots of herbs think; dill, mint and sorrel or seafood more specifically oysters and crayfish.
