Davenport Vineyards Horsmonden
A white blend from East Sussex, with aromatic fruit character - peach, floral fruit, and some citrus. A small part of the wine was fermented in large oak foudres giving it a rounded feel, creamy texture, and medium body.
In 1991 Will Davenport planted 5 acres of vines at Horsmonden in Kent. Over 25 years later the vineyards now make up 24 acres, grown on 5 parcels of land, 9 grape varieties and a multitude of soil types and micro-climates. They are keen supporters of organic farming and in 2000 he made the decision to convert all the vines and winery to organic systems, certified by the Soil Association. At the time this was a considerable risk, but ultimately the vines are in great shape, the fruit quality is second to none, and the wines show a depth of character that Davenport believe could not be achieved with the use of chemicals in the vineyard and winery.
