WINE REVIEW

Oh yes this is a superb English Wine, one for those who are looking for something with lots of depth and texture.

Element 20 is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Bacchus.

First thing you will notice is the beautiful complex nose. There’s a great freshness with rich fruit; a combination of lemon, peach and apricot. Lovely toasty vanilla and mineral notes.

Medium acidity at first taste with tangy baked apples, seamlessly blending into a smooth mix of ripe stone fruits, creamy mouthfeel. With that creaminess comes toasted, buttery, vanilla complexity. And then a really long lasting sensation of citrus zest and vibrant minerality.

This is an outstanding example of English winemaking.
