Oxney Estate launches first organic English sparkling wine

28 November 2016

Stretching out its green fingers, while further affirming its green credientials, east Sussex vineyard Oxney Organic Estate has launched its first organic English sparkling wine.

Made by winemaker David Cowderoy, The Classic 2014 is a blend of 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier, and has a low dosage of 4g/l. Adding to a collection of award-winning still and sparkling rosé, still white and a classic cuvée sparkling, the wine spent a minimum of 20 months on lees and what Oxney describes as a delicate and persistent mousse.

With more than 21 acres, Oxney is now the third-largest organic vineyard in the UK.

The wine goes for £33 at Oxney's cellar door at the winery.
