Chafor Vintage Cuvee 2015, Buckinghamshire England Six Bottle Case (Special Offer)
Set in the heart of the Buckinghamshire countryside, the first vines were planted on the 23 acre estate in 2003 – on terroir that once formed part of the ancient Royal hunting forest of Bernwood. With a world-class winemaking team to back his ambition Tim is successfully growing fabulous Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, alongside more delicate and aromatic varieties such as Madeleine Angevine and Bacchus – which is widely becoming recognised as England’s signature grape.
Produced just 12 miles from Waddesdon – aren’t we lucky to have such a fabulous boutique producer on our doorstep! this rich toasty cuvee provides abundant bottle complexity with notes of caramelized hazelnut, bread dough, figs and baked apple. Some English sparkling wines can be overtly strict with a taut texture and bracing acidity. Yet Chafor Cuvee 2015 is pitched at the polar opposite of the stylistic spectrum; this is all about accessible fluffy texture, with an easy-going character and plenty of creamy fruit. Drink now or cellar for a decade.
