Two Gold Awards!

We are thrilled to announce that our Albury Estate Blanc de Noirs 2018 has won two gold awards! In Decanter 2022 and the Independent English Wine Awards 2022. We're delighted!

This white sparkling wine from the 2018 vintage is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes and only the finest 1st pressings were used for this release.

The Blanc de Noirs is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes and only the finest 1st pressings were used. It has a delicate golden shine with fruit aromas of strawberries and cacoa. Enhanced by over 30 months of lees ageing, the complex fruit flavours combined with a chalkiness give the wine a good body whilst retaining freshness. The balance is crisp with a long finish. To be enjoyed as an aperitif, with smoked salmon or with apple crumble.

What did the judges think?

Decanter 2022

Complex aromas of bread, biscuit, toast, brioche and compact fruit aromas of citrus fruits, red fruits and red apples. The mousse is lively and refreshing, and the finish crisp. This is a wine that will continue to evolve and will gently uncoil itself over time.

"Beautifully balanced red fruit right, throughout the palate and nose."

"Nose sings, absolutely top class. Palate doesn't disappoint. Unsure re longevity potential but looking super-smart now."

"Great structure, perfectly balanced and with alluring fruit complexity; excellent."

"A real stand-out. One of my favourites so far. Red fruits jump out but aren't too intense."

"Wonderful raspberry intensity and balance. Bravo"
