- Other Info:
- Exton Park was first planted in 2003 on the South Downs - Hampshire's National Park - overlooking Exton village in the Meon valley. At first, just 12 acres were planted with the classic Champagne varieties, using different rootstocks to assess how they influenced the viticulture and final fruit. Gradually, a clear picture emerged of which best suited the terroir - and the owner's wine-making ambitions.
Now, with the full vineyard now coming to maturity, Exton Park produces non-vintage Brut Reserve, Rose and Blanc de Noirs sparkling wines, with plans in the pipeline for vintages and more single varietals. One of the first Hampshire houses to do so, thanks to the size of the vineyard, and the careful plantings according to aspect and vine characteristics.
The crystal clear gold colour tends almost to the green. Its fresh attractive nose is generous, with a lemon character and note of passion fruit. Lovely minerality in the mouth indicates a good, balanced structure, with an intense backbone and very long finish with some white pepper notes. Made from a blend of 60% Blanc de Pinot Noir and 40% of Chardonnay wines from several years.
