A wine made from the long cool growing season of 2021. Harvested from mature Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier vines raised on the fertile clay soils of Herefordshire. The small ‘21 vintage gave us a late harvest of ripe, juicy grapes.

A long cool spring with the threat of frost for many weeks finally relented to give us a summer with warm spell but overall cool.  After tireless work in the vineyard we were able to produce a wine that is full of character and is a pleasing end to a tough season!

Grapes from both varieties were treated with the same respect, gently crushed and destemmed, allowed to rest on the skins, for three days and nights and pressed. Both wines were added to a single old barrel and given the time to soften, mature and develop character and personallity. Bottled during the harvest of ‘22 with a little fermenting must. A very light chillable red with a lively fizz, an unusal but fun alternative to traditional sparkling wines.
