WINE QUALITY AND VINTAGE
ENGLISH REGIONAL WINE 2018 – PG
Pinot Noir 20%
Seyval Blanc 20 %
HARVEST DETAILS The Vineyard is south facing on sandy loam soil. GDC trellis system with 800 vines per acre or 2000 per hectare. Most vines are 10-30 years old, all grapes are hand-picked. The 2018 harvest produced an above average crop with very good ripeness levels and below average acidy. Picking was dictated by acidity levels rather than sugars, and excellent balance was a feature of the 2018 vintage.
