Coming from boutique Sussex vineyard Fox & Fox, Tradition is made from a blend of Pinot Noir with a tiny amount of Meunier with 9.5g/L dosage.
The nose on this wine is quite subtle, teasing us with light but fragrant notes of red apple and ripe peach.
On the palate, however, this is another remarkably charismatic wine from Fox & Fox. It is dry and bracing with fantastic acidity, leading to a fusion of peach with tangy apple and raspberry.
There’s a real sense of journey, as the mid-taste evolves with nutty and savoury complexity. Red apple and currant on the lengthy finish with a bright twist of zingy citrus zest that just keeps on giving. A fantastic wine that is very capable of pairing with richer food.
