Furleigh Estate West Dorset Chardonnay 2022 75cl


Tasting Note

“A crisp, cool climate chardonnay made just from the flavourful juice just under the skin of the grape. It has just a touch of vanilla flavour from its time in American oak barriques


Furleigh Estate is set in stunning Dorset countryside near Bridport, just 5 miles from the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and with similar soils to Champagne. The estate’s 50 acres of vineyards are mainly planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The proprietors Ian Edwards and Rebecca Hansford are charming, the small winery is immaculate and at every stage there is great attention to detail. Ian was voted UK Winemaker of the Year in 2012. They are very proud that all their wine is made at Furleigh Estate from their own grapes. The first vines were planted in 2005 and they now produce an average of 40,000 bottles of sparkling wine and 10,000 bottles of still wines a year.
