A Light Red Pinot Noir with rich strawberry aromas and subtle farmyard notes, light delicate pinot character on the palate, and a long, fresh finish. Ideal as an aperitif, or with light meat dishes, served slightly chilled at the end of an English summer day!

The Vineyard is south facing on sandy loam soil. GDC trellis system with 800 vines per acre or 2000 per hectare. Most vines are 10-20 years old, all grapes are hand-picked. The 2017 harvest produced an above average crop with good ripeness levels and most importantly a good level of crisp acidity. The wine required minimum intervention in the winery and produced a wine of typical varietal character.
