Up there with the very top English sparkling wines, this Blanc de Noirs is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. It's a style that's seen as being the one that goes with food better than any other sparkling wine, so expect a generous array of flavours. Citrus, cherry, apple, with a long finish - this is a wine you'll remember.

Exton use their older vines for this wine and have managed to harness their quality brilliantly. If you're a fan of seafood, try this alongside your favourites. It'll make for an exceptional gourmet experience. On the other hand, it's delicious as an aperitif too.

You'll not find a better English sparkling wine than those now coming out of Exton Park. Once simply a grape producer, the choice to make their own wines, starting in 2011 is now paying off handsomely. The medals and great reviews just seem to keep coming for this exceptional Hampshire winery.

The Producer

Hampshire's fast becoming a hotbed of top English sparkling wine production. The first vines were planted at Exton Park in 2003. With a second planting in 2009, the estate was bought by Malcolm Isaac who continued to sell the grapes to another Hampshire wine producer, Coates & Seely.

In 2011 he chose to enlarge the vineyard, invest in a cellar and start producing wines under the Exton Park name. A key decision is the use of only their own grapes (many English sparkling wines source grapes from multiple vineyard sites around the country), so what you'll taste is a true reflection of the Meon Valley's chalky soils.

The Winemaker

Corinne Seely is well qualified to fulfil Exton Park's goal of producing the very best English sparkling wines. Having studied winemaking at Bordeaux University, she joined Château Lynch-Bages at the age of 24 and was instrumental in making the famous Château's first white wine.

Further experience at a top Graves estate, Australia, Portugal's Douro, and the Languedoc saw Corinne hone her winemaking talents. Married to Christian Seely (of Coates & Seely), her aim at Exton is to produce wines which reflect the terroir of the estate.

Corrine is assisted by winemaker Oliver Whitfield, a graduate of England's premier wine school, Plumpton College. Another alumni, Fred Langdale, is vineyard manager.

The Region

Vines have been grown in England since Roman times, but it was in Hampshire that the first English commercial vineyard was established in 1952 at Hambledon. Since then the southern county has enjoyed considerable success with its wines, with estates like Hattingley and Exton Park quickly becoming regarded as among England's best wineries.

Exton Park's 55 hectares of vineyard are on chalky (high alkaline) soils, sloping away so they get great exposure to the sun over the ripening period. What's really exciting about these Hampshire wines is you're tasting a true representation of the estate's fantastic potential, using just their own fruit.

Chicken Paupiette filled with Sundried Tomato and Mushrooms

The multi-layered flavours of savoury mushroom, sweet, sun-dried tomato and rich aubergine and pepper calls for a bit of an all-rounder. A sparkling wine is an alternative but brilliant match, especially Blanc de Noir as it's can have a little more structure.

Crab Cakes

The delicate crab meat calls for a smooth, fruity, floral white which doesn't overpower the meat - try light, southern European whites or sparkling wines which will naturally complement seafood dishes. You could even go for an English Sparkling wine...

Fusion Prawn And Vegetable Curry
