2018 Pinot Noir, Nutbourne Vineyards, W. Sussex, England
We've been looking long and hard for a great English red, and we think we've found it with Nutbourne's fabulous 2018 Pinot Noir. You may remeber the long hot summer, well it certainly helped their grapes.
Produced in a Burgundian style, with 6 months in French and American Oak. It is drinking well now, but it will develop further with age. Blackberries, leather and exotic spices.
It has a lovely fresh acidity, which makes it a lovely option to be served slightly chilled on a hot day, but equally it has the depth and substance to accompany a hearty evening meal in the depths of winter.
