2017 was a cracking vintage for Pinot Noir. As always, the grapes were carefully selected hand-harvested fruit, picked much late into the year. The year started with a lovely warm March and April and we then had a decent summer and the quality of the fruit was fantastic. Harvest was wet (as it ever is!) but the fruit was safely away at the beginning of October.
A pale salmon colour with a fine mousse, this is a off-dry wine. The sweetness is subtle, carried by bags of red fruit, cranberries, rhubarb and strawberries on the front palate, and pronounced Pinot Noir character on the finish.
The profile is a natural partner for desserts and particularly suited to wedding cake toasts; however the wine’s complexity provides a wonderful counter to rich salty foods, cheeses and even spice.
This is an extremely limited production of less than 1200 bottles. Our first release, the 2016, sold out in under 3 weeks following a silver medal at The Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships 2020! This 2017 scored 91 points in the Tim Atkin MW England 2022 Special Wine Report, described as “expansive, subtle with herbal, raspberry and blossom notes, it continues to be the afternoon-tea wine of choice!”
We are very proud to get that level of recognition.
