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!
