Black Chalk Classic, Hampshire 2018

Sparkling Wine from England
5.000000000 star rating 1 Reviews
From grapes grown on Hampshire's chalky soils this chardonnay-dominant cuvée is elegant, citrus-driven and mineral with a precision and structure that will allow it to age beautifully. A small percentage of the wine was fermented in oak barrels, adding depth and complexity. One of England's most exciting new wineries.

Black Chalk

As new faces to watch go, they don't come much newer than Black Chalk, a family owned and run winery based in Hampshire's beautiful Test Valley. Despite being the new kids on the block, this property has hit the ground running and bagged numerous prestigious accolades already: Gold at the International Wine and Spirits Championship, Overall Trophy Winner and Newcomer of the Year at the Wine GB Awards, Overall Winner at the Independent English Wine Awards, and Winner of our very own Wine Champions Competition earlier this year. Pretty impressive for what is only their second vintage!

Black Chalk was set up by Jacob Leadley and his brother-in-law Andrew Seden. Jacob, who left a comfortable job in London to retrain as a winemaker, was formerly making the wine at well-respected Hattingley Valley where he was already gaining a reputation. He and assistant winemaker, rising star Zoë Driver, craft their sparkling wines from the traditional blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier grown locally in the heart of the chalklands of Hampshire. Black Chalk are just getting started and we can't wait to watch them grow.
