Three Choirs New Release was first produced in the early 90s as a patriotic response to Beaujolais Nouveau, and the first bottles will go on sale on November 17 – the third Thursday of the month, traditionally Beaujolais Day.
The white wine is a blend of 70% Madeleine Angevine and 30% Huxelrebe.
Winemaking director Martin Fowke said: “The early and very ripe harvest this year has produced some incredible flavours and balance, even at this early stage. There has never been a better vintage for this wine, and I am very pleased with the quality in the bottle.”
Fowke and David Morris, from Ancre Hill Vineyard in Monmouthshire, will emulate the Beaujolais Run by taking the wine to France in a 1964 Mini. The trip aims to raise cash for the Henry Surtees Foundation, a charity supporting causes such as head injuries, major trauma, cancer and air ambulance.
