WINE REVIEW

Whilst labelled as a White Pinot, this wine has a surprising colour of pale salmon – it’s more blush rosé than white wine, but the delightful hue sets the tone for a wine that is colourful and playful throughout.

The nose is quite lively, very reminiscent of English summer fruit – fresh raspberries, red apple and cherry.

To taste, this was the freshest of the whites that we tried – a striking persistent lime citrus acidity really cuts through and demands attention.

Then those red berry flavours take hold; tangy raspberry and red currant mixed with smoother strawberry notes. Slight mineral and floral notes on the finish.
