Since 2013, we have greatly benefitted from having two sites across the South of England – in Appledore, Kent and near Goodwood in West Sussex.
Our Kentish soils are predominantly clay, supplying the power, intensity, and weight of rich, ripe fruit. The predominantly chalk soils in West Sussex provide elegance and structure, drive and energy. Our winemaking team blind-taste over 200 base wines when creating our vintage blends, finding the perfect marriage of fruit from across these two sites. But now, for the very first time, you'll be able to taste just how special and unique each site is on its own, showcasing the most complex and interesting fruit from Commanders and Boot Hill vineyards in Kent and Selhurst Park and Down Field in West Sussex.
The winemaking team's attention to detail during their annual base wine tasting and blending process enables them to identify particularly interesting, intriguing, special wines to highlight a particular part of our vineyards and the vines within them. These expressions are about finding unique wines that represent the varietals and where they come from.
