Details

Albury Vineyards Classic Cuvée, Organic sparkling wine has all the hallmarks of a fine sparkling wine. The subtle fruit on the nose, predominately red berries from the Pinot and a little light citrus from the Chardonnay, and a hint of peach, is backed up by a really long, mouth-filling palate that lingers and satisfies. The ageing takes place on the lees for 19 months. Fresh and lively, ripe acidity is complimented by a subtle sweetness. Ideal as an aperitif, with canapés. Serve with smoked salmon, fish and seafood, especially lobster, trout or crayfish. Also excellent with mushroom risotto, light chicken dishes and sushi as well as local English hard cheeses. A rival to many of the best Champagnes in that price range. Made with grapes from certified organic and biodynamic vineyards.


Albury Vineyard is the result of Nick Wenman's passion for quality wine. Nick planted the vineyard in 2009 having retired from the IT industry to fulfil his dream of owning a vineyard. Nick believes that key to the sucess of the wines is the vineyard's committment to organic and biodynamic principles, together with excellent winemakers and his talented vineyard manager Alex, one of the few female vineyard managers in England. Albury Vineyard is situated on the southern slopes of the North Downs in the beautiful Surrey Hills, just outside Guildford, and grows traditional Champagne varietals of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, as well as some Seyval and Pinot Gris. They now make a variety of sparkling wines, as well as still.
