This is the English sparkling wine that showcases Exton's unique and special site to its full potential. You'll find it's a house style that really demonstrates just how good England's wines are right now. With 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, enjoy the astonishing purity and focus, fresh and bright flavours - very refreshing and moreish.

For any sparkling wine lover, this English wine is a real treat, and it seems the great and the good have thought so too, with it picking up a very impressive array of medals since its release. Hampshire's Meon Valley clearly is very good grape-growing territory indeed.

Exton Park find themselves, in a short space of time, hailed as one of England's very best producers of sparkling wines. The vineyards' position, in Hampshire's Meon Valley, coupled with Corinne Seely's considerable experience and skill as a winemaker, have happily collided to make this a must-try wine

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.

Spicy Pork Curry

Try this aromatic pork dish with its layers of complex spice with a vibrant, ripe white (not too dry) or sparkling wines which will balance out the heat of the curry without overshadowing the rich flavours. The Exton Park range will work a treat.

Fig and Blue Cheese Tart

The ripe, salty tang of blue cheese and sweetness of the figs contrast brilliantly with lemony mouthwatering acidity of Exton English Sparkling.

Chilean Fish Stew

Pair rich fish stews with vibrant, zesty whites which have enough fruit flavour to balance out the punchy garlic, herbs and tomatoes. How about trying some bubbles as a treat? We'd recommend the Exton Park Brut Reserve.
