The first ever release from Coolhurst was the award winning 2014 Lady Elizabeth. We received such wonderful reviews for this debut wine and it was the wonderful beginning of our venture. As a rule of thumb, a magnum should be considered for twice as long on its lees as a 75cl bottle and so here we are, nearly six years on, and the magnums are finally ready.
This is certainly the most handmade of all our releases. Hand harvested fruit, hand riddled on a pupitre, hand disgorged and hand dosaged (with a medical syringe!) at 8g/l. Then the magnificent giant bottles are hand labelled, hand foiled and are packed into handmade presentation boxes. The labels are individually printed with the unique limited edition numbers, each one available by selection on a first-come-first-served basis.
The 2014 displays a seductive light salmon colour, although slightly darker than our later vintages, with our trademark soft, fine mousse. As ever there is an abundance of strawberries, redcurrants and rhubarb and a hint of tangy, orange fruit on the palate, with some spice and plenty of creaminess. There is excellent concentration and length on the finish.
