Pinot Noir Précoce is a close relative of Pinot Noir that ripens very early and is particularly suited to England’s climate. It is revered for its aromatic qualities and soft tannins. The grapes were hand-picked at perfect ripeness, following an almost perfect grape growing season with hot and dry weather that encouraged small, concentrated berries.
They were hand-sorted immediately at the winery then fermented and aged in both neutral Burgundian oak barrels and stainless steel. Ben drew on his experience of working in France to utilise both Beaujolaise and Burgundian techniques to produce a delicate red wine that has a nod towards these styles but is typically English.
No fining agents have been used so the wine is vegan friendly gluten free.
