Cubitt Reserve Blanc de Blancs 2013
Pale straw in colour the Cubitt Blanc de Blanc displays notes of green apple, citrus and white fruits on the nose with hints of vanilla and minerality. The palate has brioche and buttered toast overtones and is vibrant, fresh and creamy with a firm balanced acidity that requires no dosage.
Excellent Aperitif that matches Shellfish, Oysters, Apple and Cinnamon pie.
The Denbies Estate, based in Dorking, Surrey is one of the larger and more well-established English vineyards, so you will be shown around by a tour guide rather than someone directly involved in the wine-making process. Some of the tours include a “train” which consists of carriages towed behind a Land Rover and goes up to the top of the vineyard giving a stunning view over the whole estate.
With its restaurant, café, large shop and a variety of tours, Denbies is a good vineyard to visit for a day out, or to pick up the basics of wine production and the history of English wine-making. Alternatively, explore the vineyards by the multitude of public footpaths that cross the land.
Denbies has been family owned and run since 1984; the vineyard was planted in 1986, and since then has become one of the largest wine producers in the UK. The core business is agriculture and they are pleased to be able to offer visitors an insight into wine production in the UK.
The Surrey Hills is a beautiful area to live in and while you are visiting do take advantage of the surrounding areas, including 7 miles of public footpath which trail throughout the vineyard.
