Hush Heath Estate's limited edition Blanc de Blancs 2010 has won Gold at The Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships.
The competition received over 650 entries from over 16 different countries. English Sparkling wine once again proving its world beating quality by wining 11 Gold medals, second only to Champagne.
Vinified in the classic Balfour manner Balfour Blanc De Blancs 2010 is a brilliant, bright white gold in colour with a soft and gentle mousse. The nose is intense, yeasty, pepper, all-spice, herby. Dry with a backbone of steely, lime acidity and citrus notes. Rich, well-structured and very scarce.
2010 was an exceptional year for Chardonnay with perfect conditions over flowering at Hush Heath. The vineyards were pushed to the limits and picking took place at the last possible opportunity on the 21st of October.
Yields were exceptionally low, therefore sugars were high, making base wines of great intensity. With this in mind a small parcel of Chardonnay from Oast House Meadow was kept aside to bottle as our first ever Blanc de Blancs (only 100 cases were made).
