“Spectacular. Honestly England’s best.” Sir Hugh Johnson OBE
“CREATIVITY IS THE NEAREST QUALITY TO SPIRITUALITY”
In 1947 my granduncle, Dr Brendan O’Regan, established the world’s first Duty Free at Shannon Airport, Ireland. He was a visionary man whose enterprise and initiative were the first steps in the creation of the global Duty Free industry we now have today. I have made this special limited edition cuvée of SUGRUE in his honour, to commemorate his 100 year anniversary on 15 May 2017.
SUGRUE Cuvée Dr Brendan O’Regan is a multi-vintage prestige cuvée blend comprising 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, aged in oak barrels. All the fruit was sourced from two exceptional vineyards on the South Downs of England, both meticulously managed. It possesses outstanding ageing potential, combining both power and structure with subtlety and finesse. Beautiful to enjoy now, it will grow in elegance and complexity if cellared for up to a decade.

“I tasted this wine in a line-up of over 100 bottles, unlabelled, and with no knowledge of what was inside – I can declare that it is the most profound, complex and rewarding English sparkling wine I have ever had the pleasure of encountering. I cannot wait to see it again, to put a name to its heavenly flavour.” Matthew Jukes
“Most of the room said this was their all-time favourite English Sparkling Wine. It’s hard to argue otherwise.” Robbie Priddle, greatbritishwine.com May 2018
I knew the 2013 vintage was ideal to produce something very special, hence Cuvée Dr Brendan O’Regan was created. Having kept back the last remaining reserves from the 2009 vintage, I created this multi-vintage cuvee which possesses outstanding ageing potential, combining both power and structure with subtlety and finesse. Beautiful to enjoy now, it will grow in elegance and complexity if cellared for up to a decade.
Mount Harry makes up most of the blend in the 2013, again a 60% Chardonnay 40% Pinot assemblage like the previous Storrington-only vintages. But the Mount Harry fruit delivers something more, a driving sense of purity which gives impeccable poise and definition to the wines, a sense of volume and weight that somehow retains an aerial component, a finesse atop the solidity of fruit that was immediately obvious.
The combination of the two vineyards is a marriage made in Sussex, a synergy that links the two sites even if they are 26 miles apart.
