Description

English organic Pinot Noir, grown on a south-facing sandy clay soil site. The grapes are 50% destemmed (without crushing the berries) and fermented with natural yeast for 10 days before pressing. Fermenting juice from the press is moved straight into oak barrels (barrels are between 5 and 20 years old) where it completes fermentation. The wine is then matured in old oak barriques for 9 months before bottling. Bottled without filtration and this wine may have slight sediment in the bottle. The 2018 vintage was one of the ripest years in recent times

TASTING NOTES

Flavours of cherries and blackberry, a good dark colour and plenty of depth. It can be drunk now or kept for up to 3 years to develop more complex flavours and a mellow character. Some hints of oak may emerge after a year or so. It benefits from opening an hour or two (or more) before you want to drink it.
