Other Info:
Gusbourne Estate sits on the low slopes of the ancient Kentish escarpment at Appledore. The extensive two hundred hectare Estate is on a single site with twenty hectares under vine cultivation with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. They are currently planting a further ten hectares of these Champagne clone vines, placing the extent of their plantings amongst the largest vineyards in England.

Classic Chardonnay aromas of green apple, citrus and mineral notes combined with buttered toast and tarte tatin all show on the nose. The palate is well balanced with a streak of zesty acidity complementing a gentle mousse that gives way to a creamy, hazelnut and baked apple filled finish.

Press:
"Bright, brimming with fresh floral and citrus character, this showed a superb, elegant intensity on the palate, described as fantastic quality and excellent value for money. A cool modern label simply added to the buyer appeal - 5/5 Stars' - Harpers Wine Stars England 2018

'Gusbourne is produced on a small estate in Appledore and, unusually for a wine business, is listed on the stock exchange AIM. This is a very impressive blanc de blancs, with notes of brioche and white fruit and a clean, long finish.' - Will Lyons, The Times, January 2018

"Pick of the bunch: Sparkling wines from Kent's Gusbourne Estates are winning top awards" The Independent, 14/02/14.

'A wonderfully evolved wine with an intense, captivating baked apple nose, secondary notes of lemon and greengage, and a powerfully rich, round and creamy-textured palate to follow. Exuberant ripe fruit flavours and bounteous buttered toast and honey notes harmonise well with restrained acidity and tangy, savoury undercurrent. (2011 Vintage)' - Decanter, 2016

Food match:

Sparkling wine is almost always a good idea with fish, and even more so if that fish is fried. So why not match this lovely English fizz with a classic fish and chips?
