Winner of Best English Vintage Sparkling Rosé last year, plus Gold and 93 points for 2013, Harrow & Hope are leaving a stellar trail. Using classic Champagne grapes and method in a superb Pinot vintage, this 2015 has gorgeous berry, toasty richness.
"Henry now challenges his highly successful mother in the award stakes with his own English Sparkling"
Hugh Johnson Wine Writer
Today English fizz is recognised as “a world-class product” (Decanter). As usual, the Laithwaite family have been leading the way, with Barbara’s Trophy winning Wyfold and Henry’s Harrow & Hope. Until 2010 Henry had been making reds in Oz and Bordeaux, but on his return to England, he and his wife Kaye planted a 6.2 hectare vineyard in Marlow with Chardonnay and both Pinots and built a new winery in 2013. Henry’s had some of the best names advising him – Tony Jordan of Australia’s Moët et Chandon and the UK’s late King of Fizz Mike Roberts. From a spectacular Pinot vintage – long, cool and aromatic – with a third of the wine barrel fermented and an extra year of lees ageing, the 2015 is even richer, with superb complexity and elegance.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
