This English red wine is the colour of black cherries with lighter edge tones. The nose has intense, red fruit combined with smoky, vanilla oak and mild tobacco overtones. The palate presents red stone fruit notes of cherry & plum, blackcurrant, strawberry & toasty oak to give a rich, but balanced weight on the palate and a mouth-watering finish that lingers.

A long, hot summer enabled the grapes to fully ripen on the vine, resulting in intensity of flavour and body. Harvested in October from Dijon & Spätburgunder still wine clones, each clone from each identified vineyard underwent its own specific protocol. Small batch fermentations were undertaken with manual pigéage (punch downs) to gently maximise the extraction of colour, flavour and structure. The wine was then transferred to barrel for 100% malolactic fermentation and ageing. 30% new French oak was used as well as experimental American and Eastern European oak. Aged for 9 months in barrel, the batches were then blended and left to settle for 2 weeks before bottling.

The wine has no fining or filtration to retain the delicate nuances of the fruit and oak. It demonstrates forward primary fruit character synonymous with young vines that will develop in intensity and potential even further with time.

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.

Devon, England

Devon's vineyards are situatued in the valleys and lowlands of south and east Devon. Mostly close to the rivers Exe, Teign and Dart.

The growing season is long, with sun and heat starting earlier and lasting longer than in many other English counties. This gives the grapes more time to ripen and more time to hang.
