Red fruits • Cherry • Earthy notes
A beautiful cool climate English Pinot Noir. This rich English red is well-balanced with ripe red fruits, coffee and smoky aromas. Leather and earthy notes complement cherry and dark chocolate, with a complexity that makes this red perfect for ageing.
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
Food Matches: Asparagus • Pork • Brie
The fruit was selected from our Foxhole and Pookchurch vineyards. The Pinot Noir grapes were hand-picked, crushed and fermented on skins for around 7 days at 25-28°C. Fermentation was in small individual tanks, allowing punchdown by hand. After pressing, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in oak barrels to provide a softer, rounder finish.
Perfectly complements grilled asparagus, pork, duck and rabbit as well as game birds. The light elegance of this wine does not over power, so a good fit with lighter, less richly flavoured foods, especially Brie.
