In The Vineyard
The 2016 growing season took a little time to really get going but by mid-July things had picked up and the sunshine continued almost unabated until harvest. The small but perfectly formed bunches were allowed to bask in a long Indian summer and achieve full ripeness with excellent phenolics – the building blocks for some great wines. By harvest time, the fruit was ripe with perfect acids and we could be incredibly exact on picking dates.
Delicate rose pink in colour with fragrant aromas of wild strawberries, white peach and rose petals. A vibrant, expressive palate displaying notes of ripe red fruits, honeysuckle and white blossom. Beautifully balanced with a bright seam of acidity, a fine persistent mousse and a long, yet elegant length. A perfect apéritif to be enjoyed all year round. “Simply superb, poised and elegant with a toasty note, a vibrant tang like unripe nectarine and a suggestion of ripe raspberries… it would be beautiful with a plate of smoked salmon.” Victoria Moore, telegraph.co.uk.
