Chartham Vineyard Blanc des Blancs 2017

Wine Facts - Blanc de Blancs (Chardonnay 2017)

100% Chardonnay. Delicate flavours of peach and citrus with a fine mousse.

Following a very cold winter, warmer than average temperatures in early spring resulted in good growth of young shoots. Then an air-mass frost on 9th May resulted in some damage, particularly to the Chardonnay vines. Recovery was rapid with flowering and fruit set coming two to three weeks earlier than normal. After a very warm summer we began harvesting on 11th September, the earliest Litmus wines had received ripe Bacchus in over 30 years. But unlike 2016, the warmth did not extend into late summer and autumn. Harvest was completed by 2nd October.

100% Chardonnay.

Soil: chalky loam with flint on South facing slope
Pruned: February, using single guyot method
Harvested: hand-picked in late September

John Worontschack and Mathieu Elzinga of Litmus Wines
