Fox & Fox Tradition is a superb, dry English sparkling wine from award-winning Sussex boutique, Fox & Fox. It is a Blanc de Noirs, mainly from Pinot Noir, aged for several years for richness & complexity.

<p style="TEXT-ALIGN: justify">Fox & Fox is a multi-award winning boutique grower-producer of English sparkling wines, cultivating 30 acres of classic varieties. Their vineyards sit either side of the ancient hilltop village of Mayfield, amongst the rolling hills, woodlands and deep-cut ghylls of the Sussex High Weald. Jonica and Gerard Fox have been growing vines since 2004 and producing wine since 2009.</p> <p style="TEXT-ALIGN: justify">In 2010, they expanded from their first Hobdens vineyard site to the second, larger Lakestreet vineyard, whilst remaining true to their first love: making limited quantities of high quality sparkling wines with a unique English twist. The climate here is similar to Champagne, allowing for a long, even ripening season. The two vineyards lie on a combination of ancient clay, shale and sandstone. Here Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are grown from medium-yielding Burgundy clones, trained on a double-Guyot trellising system. The vineyards are worked rigorously by hand with great attention paid to minimising spraying and maximising canopy management and vine nutrition.</p> <p style="TEXT-ALIGN: justify"><strong>Winemaking:</strong> <br />The fruit for this wine is entirely from the Lakestreet vineyard and is whole bunch pressed. The first fermentation occurs in steel tanks, then the second fermentation in bottle followed by at least 28 months on lees.</p> <p style="TEXT-ALIGN: justify"><strong>Tasting notes:</strong>Impressive, rich, powerful sparkler with layers of ripe, honeyed fruit, notes of nectarine, quince, toast and nuts. Great depth and complexity. </p> <p><strong>Awards:</strong><br />Platinum, 97 / 100 - Decanter World Wine Awards 2019.<br />Gold - Sommelier Wine Awards.<br />IWSC Gold Medal.<br />Gold - Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championship.<br />Gold - UK Wines Awards.</p>
