Refreshingly dry, exquisitely English
Our non-vintage white sparkling wine is a benchmark English sparkling wine. A vineyard blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Seyval Blanc, it’s dry, refreshing and precise, with red apple, pear and toasty flavours carried on a thread of beautifully crisp acidity. Very food-friendly, equally delicious on its own.

WINEMAKING All grapes are picked by hand and transported to our winery next to the vineyard. Each parcel is whole bunch pressed and fermented separately with all the wines also going through malolactic fermentation (MLF). The Estate blend is a blend of different parcels across the estate, combined with reserve wines aged in both tank and Burgundy barrels to create a consistent NV style. After blending the Estate is bottled for secondary fermentation, after which it is aged on lees, and finally spent three months on cork prior to release. The dosage added is 8.5g/l.

Six miles north of Rye, in the village of Beckley in the south east corner of East Sussex, Oxney Organic Estate has been producing award-winning organic wines since 2014. The first vines were planted in 2012 by founders Kristin Syltevik and Paul Dobson, who run Oxney as part of a wider organic farming estate. Today Oxney is the largest estate producer of organic English wines. Oxney wines are crafted as a showcase for the naturally high-quality grapes grown in the vineyard. In the winery – a converted Grade II oasthouse – interventions are kept to a minimum to promote full fruit expression.
Planted between 2012 and 2018, Oxney’s 14 hectares of vines are located on a warm, sheltered site six miles from the English Channel and 17 metres above sea level. Vines are planted on a gentle southwest-facing slope, which maximises sun exposure and aids ripening. An adjoining ancient oak forest provides natural wind protection, helping to create excellent conditions for growing high-quality organic grapes. Four varieties are planted – Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Seyval Blanc. The soil is Tunbridge Wells sand – a fine sand and silt loam – above clay bedrock.
