15. Ashdown Estate White 2018

Sussex’s Bluebell Vineyard has launched its first still wines made from grapes from the 2018 vintage, including an estate white made from Chasselas, which it is also trialling in a sparkling wine. An early-ripening variety, Chasselas is the most widely planted white grape in Switzerland. Grapes were harvested for Bluebell’s version on 27 September, and the wine is said to have aromas of green apple and citrus blossom, with flavours of nectarine and white melon. Bluebell has 1.6 hectares of Chasselas planted, and is also trialling the variety in 100 bottles of sparkling wine.

RRP: £14.95.
