Herbert Hall is a ‘Traditional Method’ sparkling wine. It is handmade from low-yield chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier grown organically at the Marden Vineyard in Kent.
On release Herbert Hall was described by the leading wine writer Matthew Jukes as “the finest debut English Sparkling Wine I have ever tasted”.
Tom Stevenson, author of the Sotheby’s Wine Encyclopedia has tipped Herbert Hall 2010 as “Definitely one of England’s best sparkling wines.”
The Marden Vineyard was planted in 2007 on a South-facing 4-degree gravel-seamed clay slope outside the village of Marden in the Weald of Kent. This warm site in the heart of the ‘Garden of England’ has consistently produced the earliest and finest fruit on the estate since it was first farmed by Herbert Hall in the 19th Century.
The separate 3-acre Herbert Hall Winery Vineyard is planted on lower ground to produce grapes with different sugar and acidity levels for blending.
