Davenport Limney Estate Sparkling
- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: The winery is at Limney Farm, an old dairy farm with buildings that made easy conversion for their new wine making purpose. Since 1993 they have extended the buildings for a dedicated bottling area and temperature controlled store. Since 2010 the winery is now solar powered. Solar panels generate enough electricity to run the whole winery.
WINEMAKING: The Pinot Noir is grown on a west facing site at Rotherfield, sandy loam soil over sandstone, planted 1993. The Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier come from vines at Horsmonden, Kent – sandy silt soil over sandstone, almost level site, planted 2007
TASTING NOTES: Green apple and conference pear fruit, buttery richness from the lees ageing and mineral earthiness from the Pinot Noir and citrus drive and edge from the Chardonnay.
