Benchmark English Chardonnay with packs of character.

Blackbook 'Painter of Light' Chardonnay is a dry white wine from Essex, England. It's 100% Chardonnay with 12.0% abv. Suitable for Vegans.

New limited edition wine from the urban winery Blackbook, based under a railway arch in Battersea, South London. Grapes are sourced the single Clay Hill Vineyard in Essex and harvested in mid-October. Whole-bunch pressed and fermented in Burgundy barrels with the grapes' indigenous yeast is a low intervention and characterful method of winemaking. 20% is new oak, the rest old. The wine is finally aged for 11 months prior to bottling. The result is an aromatic white wine with citrus, honeydew melon and stone fruits over hints of ginger and almond. Peach, zippy lime and a smoky, flinty finish make up a palate that's both intense and refreshing. A real testament to quality English winemaking.

You'll like this if you like... Oak-matured Chablis, Semillon or new world style Chenin Blanc.

Pairs beautifully with: Grilled Cornish lobster, roast chicken, bacon and mushroom pasta in cream sauce, macaroni cheese, fish goujons, roast veal or shellfish broth.

Cheese pairing: Époisses soft cow's cheese, aged Parmesan, Cornish Brie or mild Cheddar.
