Sharpham Vineyard, Devon, England.
High quality fruit combined with cold masceration deliver a wine with excellent purity. The cleanest fruit is cold macerated for 3 days prior to the fermentation which lasts about a week. The resulting wine is then transferred to a specialist room in order to go through a full malolactic fermentation prior to 8 months in 4th fill French oak barrels before bottling.
Bursting with cherry fruit aromas this is pretty Pinot Noir. The palate is light yet supple, packed with juicy red fruits. Tannins are softened by time in oak and add gentle spice to this excellent Pinot.
