Digby Fine English, Brut NV

$50.00 Excl. tax
EAN Code:

Toasty, spicy, rainier cherries and lemon verbena, honeyed almond and not quite baked apple pie. Very fine and elegant with an incredible amount of finesse and charm.

The latest addition to Digby’s portfolio, launched in summer 2016, this fizz is in its element at home on a Tuesday evening or a party celebrating one of life's big moments. This was conceived as a ‘little brother’ for the flagship Reserve Vintage. Founded upon some of the house’s most expressive Pinot Noir base wines, the Digby Brut NV gains a vitality and mellow richness from the addition of more mature Chardonnay reserve wines. The blend is balanced with a generous dash of Pinot Meunier to bring a bright and cheerful tone.

An assemblage of chalky and sandstone sites make up this 'English' bottling. Stainless steel is the primary fermentation and aging vessel here promoting vibrancy, though 10% of the final blend spends eight months in neutral French barrique. Malolactic fermentation is partially carried out as it is blocked in 50% of the stainless ferments. The wine is bottled and spent 24 months resting prior to disgorgement. It was then hit with a rather high 12 grams dosage, but only to counter the nearly 10 gram tartaric acid in this laser-like wine!
