English wine producer Chapel Down is to release a range of single vineyard wines under the Kitís Coty name on St Georgeís Day.

The wines and the Kent vineyard both take their name from local monuments to the first settlers to farm the land in the third millennium BC.

Several Kitís Coty wines will be released over the next year, starting with a 2013 Chardonnay with an rrp of £19.99.

Chapel Down winemaker Josh Donaghay-Spire said: ďThis enticing, limited production wine has rich aromas of apple, apricot and buttered toast with hints of nutmeg. On the palate it has layers of flavour and creamy texture which lead on to the long, intense, but fresh finish.

ďThe aromatic freshness of this wine lends itself naturally to a pairing with seafood, particularly white fish or shellfish. However the depth of flavour and richness would allow it to stand up to a butter or cream-based sauce.Ē

Pinot Noir and Bacchus are also planted on the 95-acre vineyard which sits on land bought by Chapel Down in 2007.
