The fruit comes from three vineyard sites: Jenkyn Place Vineyard, located in Hampshire, where the vines were planted in 2004 at 80 to 100 metres above sea level. The soils are greensand, with fractured chalk and produce wines with a rounded fruit profile. Grapes also come from the Storrington Priory Vineyard in West Sussex, which was planted in 2006 on sandy loam soils over chalk and greensand. The vines are planted at 50 metres elevation. The Mount Harry Vineyard near Lewes, in East Sussex also produced grapes for this cuvee, from vines planted in 2006, on clay loam over chalk soils at approximately 70 metres above sea-level. The soils are dominated by South Downs chalk which provides superior drainage for the vines, as well as imparting great elegance and finesse to the wines.
