Artelium Blanc de Blancs Hampshire Sparkling
Celebrating the Art and Craft of Exceptional English Wine, Artelium is a vineyard with hospitality at its heart. A space to enjoy wine and art against the breathtaking backdrop of the Sussex countryside.
Made from 100% Chardonnay grapes handpicked at their partner vineyard in Hampshire. The wine was skilfully crafted by celebrated winemaker Dermot Sugrue.
This traditional method of sparkling wine has a soft mousse and, as a result of extended time on the lees, has a round and textural mouth feel. Delicate orange blossom and sweet, shortcrust pastry on the nose with flavours of refreshing, lemon sorbet and a long finish on the palate. Delicious to drink now but also has tremendous ageing potential.
Curators Cuvée 2016 is a careful curation of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier; Hand-picked from a single vineyard and created by celebrated winemaker Dermot Sugrue.
A super concentrated nose. Opulent, polished aromas of lemon peel and aromatic balm, pink lady apple and fresh pastry. The palate is bright and intense; a wicked line of clean acidity keeps it brisk, the well-ripe fruit hangs off it keenly. Crisp pear, subtle tropical fruit notes. Long, tense toasted-brioche finish.
