Silex (French for Flint) is a refined white wine, blended from Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. It has been produced in a more classical style to the Bacchus, being gently whole bunch pressed and fermented and aged in 3-year old barrels sourced from Pouilly-Fuissé. Partial malolactic fermentation lends softness and complexity whilst retaining a fresh perfume.
On the nose the wine is bursting with apricot and peach, opening up to more honeyed, toasty characters as it sits in the glass. It has a silky, oily texture (almost umami like) meaning it excels when paired with food. It can be enjoyed now but will age beautifully for up to 5-7 years, gradually softening and revealing more complexity over time.
No fining agents have been used so the wine is vegan friendly gluten free.
