This English red wine is smooth and refined. Made exclusively from Pinot Noir grapes grown at the Huxbear vineyard, it has aromas of blackberries, violets, and liquorice. A touch of vanilla and clove comes from the time spent in oak. It is unfiltered, medium bodied with an expressive palate.
All the wines in the Huxbear range are named after mythological bears. In Greek mythology Arcas was the son of Zeus and Callisto. To prevent Arcas from killing his mother (she was a bear, but he didn't recognise her), Zeus turned Arcas into a bear and put him into the stars. Callisto is Ursa Minor and Arcas is Ursa Major, The Great Bear, who now keeps watch over the Huxbear Vineyard.
