Henners Gardner Street Classic White

2020

In a Nutshell

A modern marriage of fresh, floral Bacchus with a little barrel-fermented Chardonnay.

Tasting Notes

Gardner Street Classic has the classic floral, elderflower note we have come to know of contemporary Bacchus married with a touch of stone fruit from the Chardonnay. On the palate there's an abundance of red apple fruit, a touch of wild fennel with the barrel fermented Chardonnay giving mid palate weight and structure to a wine that ultimately finishes with a brisk, present acidity.

Production Notes

Following a warm, dry summer natural sugar levels were high and the fruit profile in the grapes was exceptional. The parcels were fermented separately to allow the expression of their respective sites to shine through (Wealden Clay vineyards in Sussex and a chalk-based vineyard in Kent). 20% of the fruit was selected to ferment in 5th fill French barrels for texture. The wines did not go through malolactic fermentation in order to retain the aromatic, floral and tropical notes characteristic of English Bacchus.
