A crisp English Chardonnay with peach blossom notes and hints of vanilla and hazelnut. 

Flavour Profile & Pairings

This style of Chardonnay has a lot in common with the wines of the Macon region in southern Burgundy such as Vire-Clessé or Saint-Veran. Peach blossom, green melon, gentle hazelnut tones, and a lashing of fresh citrus gel together into a wine that has a great depth of character and a finish kissed by gentle toast and vanilla.

There's no disguising the freshness inherent in English Chardonnay. Brisk as a northern wind in March, it enlivens and tightens the wine. The total production fitted into five Burgundy barrels, one of which being new French oak. This is what provided the lingering, gentle undertones of toast, vanilla and hazelnut.

About the Maker

Vagabond's urban winery is compact and simple, which reflects their philosophy of working with nature rather than against it. They use minimum intervention to make wines that are not only delicious but also have a sense of place.

Their vineyards are all within two hours of London and they harvest by hand in the early morning before transporting the grapes to the winery, where they are gently sorted and pressed. The juice is fermented in a mix of oak and stainless steel to create texture and mouthfeel in addition to the wonderful aromas.
