Red Pinot Noir 2019


Red Pinot Noir 2019

From £21.95

This is our second vintage of Red Pinot Noir and displays a deeper, richer ruby colour and a more complex nose than our 2018 version.  This is partly due to the vintage and partly due to increased use of the ‘saignee’ method during winemaking. The nose offers aromas of rich dark berries including black cherries backed by notes of cigarbox, black olives and dark chocolate.  On the palate it delivers excellent body for a cool climate Pinot Noir with mature soft tannins, a balanced mouthfeel and a harmonious lingering finish. All of this wine has spent 12 months in a mix of new and old French oak barrels before being bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered, under cork to allow gentle ageing.

Whilst ready to drink now it will evolve and improve over the next 3 to 5 years becoming even smoother and more elegant. Serve at room temperature (18-20ºC).

Pairing suggestions: Highly enjoyable with charcuteries cheese and nuts as an aperitif and great with a casserole or barbecued meats and vegetables.

Carefully selected grapes from certain clones within our vineyard were de-stemmed and crushed and a proportion of the juice was removed from the crushed grapes to be fermented separately (for use in our Sussex Rose) before the remaining juice was fermented in small batches on its skins.  This is known as the ‘saignee’ method (literally bleeding off) and helps to concentrate the juice for the red wine.    Soon after the alcoholic fermentation, the wine was filled into barrels for maturation over 12 months.  100% underwent MLF during the warm summer of 2020. After blending the wine was bottled without finning or filtration under cork to allow gentle micro-oxygenation in the bottle.
