About the wine: Henners Brut is produced solely from grapes grown on Henners outstanding estate, in Herstmonceux East Sussex. Henners found the unique combination of warm well drained soils, southerly aspect slope coupled with low altitude. The result is perhaps the finest vineyard microclimate in the country. Henners take a non-interventionist approach in the winery, made possible by the quality of the fruit. Vine clones and varieties are fermented separately to allow a broad palette of wines for final blending. Approximately 85% of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation. A proportion (10%) is fermented in aged oak barrels to add subtle character and layers to the wine.
Country: East Sussex, England
Grape Variety: Chardonnay 76%, Pinot Noir 12%, Pinot Meunier 12%
