Knights Bridge, West Block, Chardonnay, Knights Valley, 2019

Sale price£104.00


Knight's Bridge was founded by Jim & Essel Bailey and their friend Tom Costin. In 2006, after raising a family of four boys in the urban environment of Boston, Jim felt drawn to his agricultural roots. He thought to combine his passion for wine with farming and purchased a 100-acre parcel of land in Knights Valley. Understanding that great wine starts in the vineyard, they adopted new, sustainable vineyard management techniques, replanted portions of the estate, and hired a team of seasoned professionals who shared their ambition to produce the best wines possible. From a single, West-facing block on the Knights Valley Estate, West Block Chardonnay is crafted as a rich, opulent wine intended to linger on both the palate and in the memory. The fruit is whole-cluster pressed and then fermented in entirely new French oak at warmer temperatures to encourage richness and complexity in the mid-palate. Malolactic fermentation and extensive lees-stirring during the 14 months of barrel ageing further enriched the sumptuous flavour profile.
