The first ever red wine made by Hattingley valley. It is a delicate English red wine bursting with aromas and flavours of cherry, raspberry, strawberry and pomegranate, accented by hints of toast and dark chocolate. The fine tannins and balanced acidity provide an elegant structure and silky finish.

Best enjoyed with venison stew or vegetable ragù, the Pinot Noir is the perfect choice to put your feet up for a quiet night in or a dinner party favourite when entertaining friends.

In 2020, spring frosts in late April and early May slightly reduced the crop for some of the Hattingley vineyard sites. There was an almost perfect growing season with ideal weather conditions throughout unseasonably warm weather from late spring and into summer, a few days of rain in August and a mini heatwave in September, led to the earliest harvest with little disease pressure and great, clean fruit, bursting with flavours and superb levels of ripeness. The drier than average season meant that bunch weight were smaller, so the overall yield was lower than 2018 and 2019 – a blessing after two such bumper years.

Winemaker Emma Rice said of the wine: "Making a red wine that can compete with more traditional Pinot Noir regions is every winemaker’s Holy Grail. This, our first attempt, was only possible thanks to the wonderful 2020 vintage. We don’t know when we will be able to do this again so get it while you can."

Pinot Noir

When made well, Pinot Noir shines. When young it has delicious aromas of cherries, raspberries, and strawberries.

As the wine ages, it will develop complexity and mystery. It has the capacity to become a gamey style of wine. It will show notes of autumn, truffles and mushrooms, especially when originating from the top vineyards of Burgundy.

Hampshire, England

The geology of Hampshire is Jurassic limestone and chalk, perfect for growing the trio of sparkling wine grapes - Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir. The English wine revival started here, on the chalk of the South Downs, in 1951 at Hambledon Vineyard. More recently other quality vineyards have sprung up around Winchester.

English red wine! Who would have thought that we would be able to make great red wine in this country. It's a light Pinot Noir (don't expect a big fruit bomb) but perfect for summer.
