Our English Red Wines and What Sets Them Apart

English red wine is a rare delight, known for its refined flavours and complex bouquet. The UK's cool climate provides a unique terroir, allowing slower ripening for intricate flavours and balanced acidity. This emerging region is gaining global attention for its innovative techniques and sustainable viticulture, making it a must-try for wine enthusiasts. Our meticulous vineyard management ensures high-quality Pinot Noir and Rondo grapes. Techniques like cold-soaking before fermentation enhance fruit and spice notes, while malolactic fermentation adds smoothness. Some wines mature in oak barrels for added depth. Our winemakers focus on precision, blending each batch for rich, full-bodied flavours, reflecting our commitment to quality and sustainability.
