Hundred Hills Sparkling Wine

Having known Stephen and Fiona Duckett for a number of years, we have followed progress closely at Hundred Hills and were delighted this week to visit the winery to taste through the Special Edition Preamble wines that are to be released next week.

With no expense spared and the very finest care and attention paid to every single aspect of winemaking, from soil, to bottle packaging, these are truly unique and special wines, and we feel very fortunate to stock them. There is:

Preamble Rosé 2018 – Salmon Pink in colour, incredibly fresh with a real chalky character typical of the soil here

Preamble #1 2017 – 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir. A wonderful combination of stone fruits such as nectarine, tangerine with that distinct minerality. Wonderfully dry with a beautiful finish

Preamble #2 2018 – 75% Pinot Noir here with 25% Chardonnay and a lovely fresh red fruit nose, with some darker fruit that follows through on the mid palate. The best wine we have tried this year. Seriously.

To celebrate the launch, we have a special gift pack of the 3 release’s. Stephen will also be hosting a zoom tasting for the three with us on the 17th December at 6pm and if you sign up,  then when COVID rules allow in the spring of 2021 we will host a tasting at Hundred Hills for you as the Grape Minds tour bus kicks off spectacularly!

The wines will retail for £35 each however, you can try all 3 here for £99 with the zoom tasting, and future vineyard visit and tasting. Think ‘zoom now, visit later’.
