ABV 12%

The fruit characteristics show beautifully with aromas of wild strawberries, red currant and raspberry on the nose. The palate deftly balances crisp acidity, with creamy texture and juicy red berry fruit, culminating in a refreshing and moreish finish
Due to the exceptional 2019 vintage, Steven made the decision to produce Bride Valley’s second vintage of still wine. The fruit for the Chardonnay was vinified in stainless steel tanks and then left for four months on its lees. This wine has a very floral nose coupled with a broad palate and a refreshing acidity that lifts the finish.

The late Steven Spurrier and his wife Arabella established Bride Valley, located in West Dorset. Steven, while running Les Caves de la Madeleine and L'Academie du Vin in Paris in the 1980s, had soil (chalky) samples from Arabella's 80 hectare estate tested and the results came back: "very similar to Champagne". This is not surprising because the village of Kimmeridge is just 24 miles as the crow flies from Bride Valley. After two decades and three visits from Boisset's sparkling wine expert, Georges Legrand, vines were planted on the best sites in the bowl of the amphitheatre-like estate. Three hectares were planted in 2009, rising to a total of 10 hectares in 2013 when planting was completed.
