Bride Valley Dorset Chardonnay has a very floral nose coupled with green apple, lime zest, pink grapefruit and kiwi skin.
On the palate it is surprisingly broad, with summer fruits, lots of natural acidity lifting the length and the finish.
Bride Valley Dorset Chardonnay pairs well with oysters and other fresh fish and shellfish and is wonderful with goats cheese.
About the vineyard
Steven Spurrier and his wife Arabella are behind Bride Valley, located in
After a celebrated career in wine – and inspired by the chalky, south-facing slopes of his wife Bella’s Dorset sheep farm – Steven Spurrier joined the English sparkling wine revolution.
In 2008, he and Bella went to Burgundy’s famous Pepinieres Guillaume vine nursery, where they selected the finest Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier root stocks.
In 2011 the first Bride Valley harvest was picked.
It sold out on release in 2014.
There are now 10 hectares under cultivation, producing three elegantly sparkling English wines in the heart of Dorset’s breathtaking Bride Valley.
