We recently planted another two hectares of vines at the Waitrose farm in Hampshire. We make sparkling wines; but today, I’d like to highlight three fantastic English still wines: a medium-dry sonnet from the Welsh Borders; Chapel Down’s answer to sauvignon blanc; and the lemon-and-elderflower loveliness of Denbies’ Surrey Gold.

Three Choirs Sonnet Medium Dry Exclusive to Waitrose, this crisp and refreshing white wine bursts with citrus and freshly cut apple, and its luscious tropical fruit flavours pair perfectly with Asian dishes. [Search code 736748]

Denbies Surrey Gold Wonderfully light and fruity, this is a floral and fragrant blend of müller-thurgau, ortega and bacchus varieties, showing hints of spice and juicy fruit flavours, and a burst of lemon and elderflower. [Search code: 077023]
