Henners is proud to announce our Multi-Vintage prestige cuveés, which allow us to blend the very best base wines from numerous vintages to create a wine that is greater than the sum of its’ illustrious parts. As with all of our wines, only fruit grown in our outstanding vineyard is used for our blends.
Multi-Vintage should not be confused with non-vintage, where a proportion of aged base wines are added to the current vintage to accelerate the progression of the producer’s entry level wines.
Multi-Vintage is the ultimate indulgence in the crafting of the finest sparkling wine. The very best base wines from each vintage are selected for their ageing potential, and kept aside for reserve wines. They are then cellared, in bottle at partial pressure on lees, until ready for addition to a Multi-Vintage prestige blend in years to come.
Cellaring reserve wines in this labour intensive manner, as opposed to in stainless steel tanks, allows the wine to develop complexity on lees, preventing oxidation, and so maintains the greatest elegance, and finesse.
This patience and dedication is realised when we come to blend the base wines for our Multi-Vintage wines. The broad pallet of outstanding reserve wines from many vintages allows us to create something very special.
As pioneers in Multi-Vintage, we continue our passion for crafting the very finest sparkling wines, from possibly the greatest vineyard in the country.
Our first Multi-Vintage wines were cellared in 2011 and we expect their release in 2016.
