'Black Chalk is one of the most exciting new releases to have hit the English wine scene. Jacob is a brilliant winemaker and his wines showcase all his talent: they're pure and vibrant, utterly self-assured and brimming with potential. Whatever you do, don’t miss out on these wines, superstars in the making.' – Peter Richards MW
Black Chalk is a labour of love from award-winning winemaker Jacob Leadley and family, with the eagerly-awaited inaugural 2015 vintage wines released in April 2018.
Truly exceptional fruit is sourced entirely from vineyards in Hampshire, a quintessentially English landscape Jacob knows well, having been making world-class sparkling wines at Hattingley Valley since 2011. The traditional triptych of grapes come together in two debut wines of winsome brio and charm – notably and intriguingly for us a role more prominent for Pinot Meunier, too often the bridesmaid of sparkling wine.
From the chalklands of Hampshire, they’re two hugely exciting and important leaps forward for an English wine scene already brimming with energy.
