Greyfriars Vineyard was first planted in the Surrey Hills in 1989 and has been producing great grapes and wines for over 20 years

The current owners, Mike and Hilary Wagstaff, took over in 2010, with the aim of expanding the vineyard, building a state of the art winery, cellar and tasting room and producing stunning quality English sparkling wines

They have planted over 30 acres of new vines, predominantly the three classic Champagne grape varieties; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. This has enabled them to create a small range of spectacular Engish sparkling wines reflecting the unique local soil conditions, climate and terroir of the Surrey Hills

By the end of the decade, they will be producing over 100,000 bottles annually including this excellent Vintage Blanc de Blancs of which only 2000 bottles were made

Grapes were handpicked and whole bunch pressed. Fermentation and aging in stainless steel tanks with malolactic fermentation prior to bottling

Bottled in summer 2015 and disgorged in May 2016 before release in September 2016 after 30 months on lees and cork

Dosage is 7.5g / litre
