Curators Cuvee 2018, Artelium, Sussex
Out of stock
This is a bright wine full of flavours like golden apples and buttery brioche. It has had 60 months to age on lees, which brings depth and maturity into the wine. The layers of complexity and autolytic characters dominate the wine.
Artelium is an artisanal wine producer based in the Sussex countryside, where they create fine English wines using traditional methods.
Fermentation takes place mainly in stainless steel tanks, but sometimes in oak barrels. At Artelium, they use a traditional method of winemaking which means bottling the wine with yeast to encourage a second fermentation. The CO2 produced during this process gives us those all important bubbles. Once complete, we leave the wine to age on its lees for a minimum of four years.
