Tasting Notes

Oh boy are we excited to introduce you to the wines of Danbury Ridge! Just 888 bottles made of the 2018 Octagon Block Chardonnay, the estate's top wine. A more intense nose than their signature  Chardonnay, with a little hint of the new oak. Lemon curd, dried hay, baked honeyed oats, and toffee nut crisp, leading to a palate with an extraordinarily seamless, silken texture, and a quiet and persisting energy and poise. Nougat and a little honeysuckle, creamy and lush. Certainly distinctive to the first Chardonnay, and with such intensity. Max 3 BOTTLES per customer

More Info

Located in the warmest, dried area of the UK, the first vineyards were planted at Danbury Ridge in 2014, and 2018 is their debut vintage. And as Jancis Robinson said, "what a debut!" The focus here has, and always will be still wines, and with the climate they have, and the ripeness levels the grapes are reaching, one can certainly see why. When Swig was founded, who knew one day we would be talking about the brilliance of Essex terroir! We firmly believe that Danbury Ridge have raised the bar exponentially for English still wine, and we're so excited to join them at the beginning of their journey.
