At Velfrey Vineyard we have chosen to specialise in the production of sparkling wines that follows the traditional method as used in the production of Champagne, as well as still white wines from the variety Solaris which thrives in cooler climates. In 2021 we used some of our Seyval grapes to make a natural skin contact white wine
A non-vintage wine made with Seyval Blanc and Pinot Noir, with added Chardonnay for further depth and complexity.
This quality, traditional method, sparkling wine has spent 18 months on the lees developing a delicious and refined blend of rich biscuity notes and fresh citrus fruit flavours.
Cuvée Reserve 2019
Made from two thirds Seyval blanc and one third classic Pinot Noir our 2019 Cuvée Reserve has had 24 months of lees ageing to provide a delightful balance of fruit led and autolytic characters.

Vinegrowers Notes | A year that has been characterised by winegrowers as having "All the right notes, just not necessarily in the right order". Our Seyval Blanc escaped the severe May frost that devastated most of the UK. The relatively dry cool late Summer/early Autumn led to small berry sizes with excellent juice. In summary: low yield, outstanding quality.
