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.
Notes of thyme and sage add a savoury component that would pair well with many summer dishes.
A very pure, dry expression of Bacchus but with the added lift of the light bubbles.
Impressive length with profound yeasty complexity on the finish.
A fun, fruity and playful wine with an underlying red berry fruit purity that remains firmly true to Albourne Estate's established stylistic expression.
A delicious first ever sparkling wine from Alison Nightingale's Albourne Estate.
A serious wine lovers wine with rich mineral, grass & dried herb notes.
