Exton Park’s Blanc de Noirs, for anyone that has tried it before, almost flies in the face of convention compared to the often brooding, muscular character that Noirs can offer. Instead, it’s refined, restrained and ultimately, almost perfumed.
The RB28 is made entirely from Pinot Noir, and has bright and fresh aromas, with citrus, honeysuckle, apple and just a dash of cranberry.
The palate on this wine really sums up that Exton Park ‘house-style’. There’s a fusion of brisk, crisp acidity and crunchy orchard fruit, with suggestions of tangy redcurrant. The mid-taste is softer, with notes of ripe peach, melon and a seasoning of pastry notes.
The RB 28 has lean profile, further brightened with striking minerality, but it’s rounded by a silky soft mousse and ripe fruit suggestions.
