Description

2017 Bride Valley Brut Reserve
The perfect light apéritif and beautifully displays the delicate cool climate qualities of English sparkling wine. Pale lemon-yellow in colour, with persistent tiny bubbles, elegantly lifted fruit and a textured dry finish. The ripe fruit gives it a full-bodied quality that make it perfect with salad, seafood, fish, or even chicken.
Tasting Note: Light lemon-yellow in colour with tiny persistent bubbles, still quite tight (June 2020) but the blend shows extremely well with a firm lift of fruit that will open up in the glass with natural acidity adding freshness to the finish. The class of the vineyard and winemaking really shines through.

2017 Bride Valley Blanc des Blancs
100% Chardonnay from the south-facing slopes of Litton Cheney, Dorset. Disgorged after 24 months on the lees, it is released for the summer – three years after the vintage. The perfect aperitif
Tasting Note: Silver pale with lemony tints, it has white flowers & a spring-like freshness on the nose with citrus elements & a hint of dry honey. A great purity of fruit on the palate, showing a light creaminess at the start contrasting with a Granny Smith acidity on the finish. A true reflection of Bride Valley’s chalky Kimmeridgian soil.

2018 Bride Valley Rose Bella
A delicious palate of red fruit… cranberry, redcurrant, raspberry… almost summer fruit pudding with real verve and freshness from balanced citrus acidity. More depth and intensity follow leading to a long, fine finish. Best vintage to date!
Tasting Note: Wonderful appearance in the glass, deeper than in previous vintages, a beautiful salmon pink with a constant fine mousse and great energy. A lovely, attractive nose of a raspberry and redcurrant fruit character, light creamy nuances and great freshness.

About Bride Valley
The Dorset estate of esteemed wine writer Steven Spurrier and his wife Bella. The vines are planted in an amphitheatre-like vineyard overlooking the village of Litton Cheney, near Bridport.
Following Steven's tests, the local geology here was found to be very similar to Champagne, perhaps rather unsurprisingly as the village of Kimmeridge is a short distance away with its geologically identical chalky soil to the Champagne region. The wines here are a real joy to drink, beautiful fruit comes off these rolling vineyards and is vinified at the neighbouring Furleigh Estate by the brilliant Ian Edwards.
