Produced over at Hattingley Valley’s winery, Raimes’ second vintage is a balanced blend of 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Pinot Meunier.
The nose is slightly muted in its youth, with light citrus zest and a toasted nut, floral and gingerbread elegance.
The Raimes is quite a lot fresher in character than the other youthful examples. It has a really crisp green apple bite with slightly tart redcurrant zing and the acidity is very pronounced and zippy.
The standout quality of this wine is the lengthy finish; interweaving the redcurrant tang with hints of mineral, lemon zest and spice.
