Head Blender notes:
“I only declare a vintage for this style when Chardonnay, particularly that grown on greensand, shows the taut power and structure required for long ageing – a key principle of the Digby wines.
“Pristine yet sophisticated, this 2013 combines the energy of all special vintages with that harvest’s unique, concentrated power. The wine’s extensive ageing ability is supported by deep levels of flavour from the Pinots on the lingering finish.”
