Brut Reserve

  • Highweald Wine Estate
  • Sussex, The United Kingdom

Method & Production

Made from a classic blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier grapes, carefully selected and hand-harvested from their Sussex vineyards. This is a traditional method sparkling wine, which goes through alcoholic and malolactic in 90% stainless steel and 10% oak, with secondary fermentation in bottle. A multi-vintage blend, over six vintages, which sees approximately 2 years on the lees prior to disgorgement, and 3 months bottle refinement before release. Dosage 6 g/l. 

Tasting notes

Light golden in colour with a fine persistent mousse. Highweald's signature wine is refreshing and elegant in style, with aromas of orchard and citrus fruit, toast, and spice. On the palate, the Chardonnay dominance brings crisp fruit and freshness. The Pinot adds depth and roundness, with wonderful length.

Food matching

Enjoy as an aperitif with salted almonds or alongside fresh oysters, smoked salmon, white crab, cheese souffle, or lightly buttered asparagus.
