The 2015 vintage is a blend of 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, using fruit sourced from both Storrington Priory Vineyard and Mount Harry Vineyard and partly matured in oak barriques.
A very small harvest, just 3,000 bottles compared to the 8,000 produced in 2014, disgorged in June 2020 and in just remarkable form.
