The Henners Sparkling Reserve wine from Sussex England has a delicate nose with bready and citrus characters. The palate is biscuity and honeyed – with a fine, soft and creamy mousse. The finish is long and very elegant. Beautifully poised!
The fruit for the Henners Reserve is from 4 hectares of vineyards are south-facing with sandstone soils, three miles from the sea. At just 24m above sea level the vineyards were first planted at this site in 2007. Harvest usually takes place in late September. This wine will have spent over 36 months on lees at time of release, and a minimum of 5 months in cellar once bottled.
Henners is owned and run by Lawrence Warr and is the result of his long term dream to produce the finest English Sparkling Wine. Larry started his career as an automotive engineer in the exciting world of Formula One. Having left Formula One to set up an engineering consultancy, the search for the perfect vineyard site began. The search was a lengthy and dedicated one – as the ideal combination of soils, aspect, slope, altitude and microclimate was difficult to find. After about 18 months of searching, I found the site that would become Henners Vineyard, where free draining sandstone soils, a steep south facing slope, and low altitude combine
The vineyard in Herstmonceux, East Sussex (just 4 miles from the sea and 24m above sea level), was planted in May 2007, with the winery following in 2009. Today, the 10 acre estate is planted exclusively with the traditional Champagne varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. As he says, My aim is to be large enough to do it professionally, but small enough to do it well. Larry named the vineyard Henners in honour of his French ancestor, Henners Dubois, who was forced to flee Paris for England during the French Revolution in the late 18th Century.
An elegant aperitif wine and a fantastic accompaniment to celebrations.
