Here at Polden Wines, we grow two varieties of grape that were planted in 2008 within a total area of 2 acres: Pinot Noir which takes up 2/3 of the area, with the remainder being planted to Chardonnay. The two varieties yield the same tonnage but as can be seen from above, the Pinot Noir is a lower yielding grape. It’s seductive colour and complex flavours give it advantage to be used either as a full Red, Rose or to have a small quantity included in a White sparkling wine, enriching the colour.

 

The main constituent of the White sparkling wine is Chardonnay, the grape used to make Champagne. We use this variety un-oaked for both still and sparkling white. Having been grown in England with cooler temperatures than the New World Chardonnay grapes are exposed to has, we believe a very positive effect on the resulting flavour and texture: Polden Chardonnay used in still and sparkling wine is clean and fresh, with a hint of citrus, making it very different from the heavier and more viscous non-English Chardonnay wines.

 

All Polden wines are Single Vineyard, meaning that the grapes from which the wine is pressed only comes from Stocklands vineyard and is not blended with grapes from any other source. The wines are mostly single variety i.e. only Chardonnay or Pinot Noir in the bottle, however this year 2020 we intend to make a sparkling wine with a blend of both varieties, being ready in 2024 we have plenty of time to think of a name but already have named it as…………………..Polden Carnival!!

All Polden Wines are suitable for vegans.
