Score Seven Points for Canterbury
Produced just a drop kick away from the Marine Travel Ground, using the finest Kent-grown grapes, ‘Seven Points’ has been created to be our club’s official sparkling wine. A match-winning example of a quality Kentish sparkling wine to celebrate big moments on and off the field.
Seven Points was lovingly made by Defined Wine, near Bridge, using Chardonnay grapes from Plumford Farm near Faversham. Made using the same high-quality technique as used in Champagne (where Nick Lane, their Head Winemaker when not watching his son play at Canterbury Rugby Club, previously worked for Dom Perignon), the grapes were hand-picked in October 2021 and then pressed gently in whole bunches, to slowly release their juice. Following fermentation and filtration, the wine was bottled in January 2022. A yeast culture was prepared prior to bottling and then mixed into the wine, so that a secondary fermentation happened in bottle, giving the wine its sparkle. Once this was complete, the yeast cells would have broken down to gently release greater flavour to the wine, which was then riddled and ‘disgorged’ to eject the yeast, and a cork and wire cage inserted.
The result is a delicious wine that exhibits fresh citrus, green apple, and a hint of crusty French bread. This is a true reflection of the local quality of the chalk – lying under the pitches that rugby club members are more used to seeing.
