A blend of 24 herbs and spices, many picked in and around Knightor Manor, were used for Knightor's first White Vermouth. Some of the classic herbs were used such as Wormwood [Artemisia absinthium], Sage [Salvia officinalis] and Oregano [Oreganum vulgare], plus some more unusual and herein lies the key to the delicate elegance and complexity.

The herbs were first infused in a fruity Eau de Vie, distilled from Knightor wineries own grape skins. After a short steeping period, the herb infusion was blended with a reserve sparkling base wine and allowed to mature and integrate for a short period before bottling.

English White Vermouth

Citrus, mint and fresh sage aromas leap from the glass.

This vermouth has an alluring, multi-layered nose that marries herbs with the delicate fruit aromas typical of Knightor sparkling wines. The palate is equally appealing, sweet with a pleasant, gentle bitterness.

What the Experts think

"Smells like minty nougat. Actually, it smells like mint fondant! It smells so clean and bracing that you want to bathe in it! Definitely in the sweet category, but as with their dry white vermouth, there is a distinct cool menthol spine to the wine that balances the sweetness with elegance and a drawing-out length" - Jancis Robinson Vermouth Tasting of 88 world Vermouths | 11 Jan 2021
