Gusbourne Brut Reserve 2018

Gusbourne Brut Reserve 2018


Based in Appledore, Kent, the original Gusbourne estate dates back to 1410. In 2004, Andrew Weeber took over the estate with a clear vision and a single goal: to create English Sparkling Wines that would stand up alongside the very finest offerings from across the globe. The estate owns 90 hectares of vine focused on the classic grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Only the best quality fruit is harvested, all hand-picked by skilled vineyard team. Gusbourne’s unique terroirs and mild microclimates add their own depth and complexity. Under Chief Vineyard Manager, Jon Pollard, careful stewardship, the combination of site, soil and precision in the vineyards means that only the best grapes are used in winemaking.

Light golden in color with a fine, delicate mousse and aromas of green apple, nectarine and white flowers. The palate is fresh and fruit driven, dominated by orchard fruits, ripe lemon and peach notes, with hints of baked pastry and toasted nuts leading to a long finish.
