*Best Wine on Show and Best Sparkling Wine at the London International Wine Show.*
Coates and Seely is the brainchild of Christian Seely and Nicholas Coates. The pair spent a year scouring Southern England for the ideal place to make excellent sparkling wine. In 2008 they found the Wooldings on the chalk downlands of Hampshire. The vineyards now total 24 hectares and are planted with the Champagne varieties. The Rosé was the first release, followed by the Blanc de Blancs. This wine comes entirely from the 2009 vintage which yielded very good quality Chardonnay grapes. It has a medium gold colour with a fine mousse. On the nose aromas of freshly picked green apples with a touch of ripe lemon citrus and hints of brioche from the ageing period spent on the lees. The palate is rounded and full with plenty of ripe apple character and great levels of refreshing acidity. Long, persistent and lively finish. It's a great match with salmon or other fatty fish.
"Beautifully poised, Chardonnay nose, a touch of biscuit, but taut, apple and citrus tang (English apples) with delicious bite, a real juicy, perfumed apple fruit on the palate and so much lemony tang and finesse." 94/100 - The WineGang.com, June 2012
"Made by two erudite and informed gents, Coates and Seely is a new label with serious élan and vivacity. With rapier-sharp acidity and pinpoint accurate floral notes this is a very classy wine indeed." Matthew Jukes - Mail on Sunday, May 2012
"Classy style, fresh but rounded with ripe citrus and green apple (fresh and cooked) and citrus, touches of the hedgerow (blackberry and hawthorn) and a yeasty/bready/uncooked cake mix note too." Simon Woods, October 2012more ↓ less ↑
