Exton Park

The Wines

Sparkling wines from the South Downs in the heart of Hampshire

Exton Park Brut Reserve NV

An elegant expression of Exton Park’s unique chalky terroir. Made from a blend of 60 % Pinot Noir and 40 % of Chardonnay wines from several years, this is a refreshing wine that can not only be served as an aperitif but also matched to salmon, white meat, and even a raspberry cake.

‘In colour, the crystal clear gold colour tends almost to the green. Its fresh attractive nose is generous, with a lemon character and note of passion fruit. A lovely minerality in the mouth indicates a good, balanced structure, with an intense backbone and very long finish with some white pepper notes.’

Exton Park Rosé NV

A sparkling pale pink, delicate yet with a surprising depth of fruit, this wine is made by pressing very slowly and carefully 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier grapes for just the right amount of time to achieve the subtle colour.

An ideal aperitif or ‘celebration’ drink, but also good with shellfish or light meats  –  as well as fine charcuterie like Lomo or Bresaola.

‘The wine displays its delicate pink colour like roses in a garden when the new buds are blossoming. After an open and enticing nose of strawberry liquorice, the wine reveals rich fruit characters in the mouth, including white peach and the rich plum flavours of the Pinot Noir. This well balanced Rose is the perfect example of the complexity of the Exton Park vineyard.’

Exton Park Blanc de Noirs NV

Made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, of which 15 % are from the young recently planted vines, and the rest from the more mature vines of earlier plantings.

This is a wine for gourmets, with rich rounded fruit, and lovely with nuts as an aperitif, or with fresh or smoked trout, or even Japanese Sushi.

‘The colour is reminiscent of  the pale golden wheat moving in the wind during the summer. The nose is open, with a slight note of brioche and a touch of lime tree flowers, while the wine is round and generous in the mouth.  The long finish is delicately spicy with a hint of nutmeg’

Exton Park Pinot Meunier Rosé

With a rosy pink colour, this 100% Pinot Meunier Rose shows a wonderful floral style reminiscent of early summer.  Fresh and delicate, with a peach finish, it is bottled in green glass to preserve the special Pinot Meunier characteristics. It is, we believe, the first of its kind in England – and made possible because of the exciting variety of terroirs and mature vines we have at Exton Park. And the skill of our winemaking team as they vinify plot by plot.

“With a radiant pink, almost coral, colour, this Rose is attractively perfumed with notes of early jasmine and honeysuckle on the nose. It is surprisingly full in the mouth, displaying a gingerbread spiciness, and a fruity white peach finish.’

Exton Park Blanc de Blancs Vintage 2011

(available in a stylish presentation box)

The first Vintage wine to be released (September 2015), this is 100% Chardonnay from the pure chalk terroir from the top of the hill – the oldest plot in the vineyard – made in a particularly good year. A fine example of what can be achieved from this very special site. Just 2500 bottles were made in total, so the quantity will be limited – perfect as a valued Christmas gift.

‘A luminous gold, reminiscent of wheat ripe for harvest, with a nose of toffee, brioche and mandarin  notes and a stone flint backbone. In the mouth, the wine has a creamy, almond flavour with a hint of lemon zest and clean minerality, combining complexity, balance and length.  A wine to be savoured….’

Exton Park Rosé Vintage 2011

(available in a stylish presentation box)

Just released, this is a rare wine only available in extremely limited quantities, and destined for fine dining and wine connoisseurs. Delicate pink in colour, and made mainly from Pinot Meunier from the older sites in the vineyard, the complexity has been achieved by the uniquely slow pressing of the grapes.

‘The enticing salmon pink colour has almost a gold or copper hue. On the toasted hazelnut nose there are also surprising notes of passionfruit, maple and even sweet nectar. As it has aged, the wine has developed a full palette of spices. With remarkably fine bubbles, the wine is well balanced and full of flavour, with berry fruits combined with a creamy delicacy, concluding in a smooth, harmonious finish’
