Made from the best fruit available in the UK and aged in 30% new oak, this unique English Red wine displays a complex and intense array of black cherries, raspberries and bramble fruit, underpinned by subtle toasty oak.

A beautiful, long, hot summer in 2020 enabled the grapes to fully ripen on the vine, resulting in the intensity of flavour and body. Harvested between 3rd – 20th October 2020 from Dijon and Spätburgunder still wine clones only, each clone from each identified vineyard underwent its own specific protocol.

Small batch fermentations were undertaken with manual pigéage (punch downs) to gently maximise colour, flavour, and structure extraction. The wine was then transferred to barrel for 100% malolactic fermentation and ageing.

30% new French oak was used as well as experimental American and Eastern European oak. Aged for nine months in barrel, the batches were then blended and left to settle for two weeks before bottling.

The wine has no fining or filtration to retain the delicate nuances of the fruit and oak. It demonstrates a forward primary fruit character synonymous with young vines that will develop in intensity and potential even further with time.

COLOUR: Black Cherry with lighter edge tones

NOSE: Intense, red fruit combines with smoky, vanilla oak and mild tobacco overtones.

PALATE: Red stone fruit notes of cherry & plum blend blackcurrant, strawberry & toasty oak to give a rich, but balanced weight on the palate and a mouth-watering finish that lingers and evolves.

STYLE: Elegant, refined and complex red ABV: 12.5%

Drinking Window: 2022-2027

Very happily surprised

Quality yummy wine. Unlike many Pinot Noirs this is full bodied wine. Really good wine with hearty food. A friend very kindly gave me as a present, I’m not sure I will purchase anymore as good as it is there are better wines at this price.

2020 Pinot Noir

We purchased a bottle of the Pinot Noir when we visited the winery this summer and we opened it last night. What a delight. It is still a little closed up at the moment but the fruit is there, the tanins light and it has considerable length of finish. This was the best English red wine we have found so far by a considerable margin. It clearly needs time to develop further, we were 'cradle snatching' but we didn't expect what we found. Well done!
