In late January, our events team had the pleasure of popping down the road to Langham Wine Estate, the fabulous producers of our St Giles English Sparkling – The Countess.
Even in the winter months, the small but dedicated team were braving the cold weather to hand prune and tie the vines; one of many important choices that leads to such high quality wine.
The teams year round care, along with the vineyard’s south-facing aspect and chalk soils, result in well ripened grapes – only the best of which make it to the winery.
Our exclusive 2015 vintage is available to order; a perfect gift for boutique wine lovers.
The Langham winery – only a short walk from the vineyard, is 50:50 stainless steel tanks to used French barriques.
This combination of both classic and modern methods of fermentation produces subtly varying notes that allow Tommy; head Winemaker, to create reliably balanced flavours each year.
The wine is left untouched in the barrel (or tank) until deemed perfectly fermented – which usually takes a minimum of 6 months.
This time allowed for natural fermentation prevents the need for filtering or fining of the wine before bottling, meaning everything made at Langham is vegan and vegetarian friendly.
