Hundred Hills is an English winery located in Oxfordshire, and they cultivate their vineyards on steep slopes rich in chalk. Their focus lies in producing wines that are described as “clean” and “clear,” aiming to capture a distinct sense of the terroir, much like the finest Burgundies. Each year, their wines will exhibit variations due to the unique characteristics of that particular vintage, while their winemaking approach remains minimalist. By embracing a minimalist style, they strive to achieve a pure expression of their vineyards, allowing the wines to truly reflect the essence of each harvest.
Hundred Hills Preamble N2 is a blend, made from Chardonnay from thin soil of the “Amphitheatre” vineyards, and Pinot Noir from gentle slopes and prolonged ripening season. The bouquet of this wine is filled with luscious aromas of ripe pears and cooked quince, with velvety and lavish mousse. It unveils flavours of ripe stone fruits, delicate tangerine undertones, and subtle nuances of almond pastry. This wine encapsulates in every sip the intricate flavours and enticing aromas that winemakers tirelessly pursue during the last days of harvest in the vineyard.
Food pairing suggestion: Roast goats cheese with pumpkin.
