This brand new limited release was launched to celebrate Greyfriars’ local history and, in particular, WWII radio operator, Noor Inayat Khan. NOOR 2020 is a blend of Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.
I found it a little closed on opening, but it loosened up with a little more time, releasing aromas of green apple, citrus, white peach, and a flinty minerality.
To taste, again it’s immediately the crunchy green orchard fruit and citrus flavours that stand out. The combination of part Malolactic Fermentation, part oak barrel-ferment brings an evolving structure to the wine. A slightly grippy texture and some light nutty, savoury tones add to an otherwise strait-laced wine.
Lots of tangy cranberry and raspberry red berry flavours with a big hit of grapefruit tang.
WOTM February 2019 Packed full of character; crisp orchard fruit leads to fuller notes of honeyed apricot and delicious biscuit notes.
Crisp green apple and citrus flavours with flesh peach and textural oak spiciness.
Quite simply the best, most grown-up wine that has been released to date from the rising stars of Surrey. Very exciting!
A fresh and fruity first vintage of still rosé from Greyfriars in Surrey.
A fruit forward rosé with delicious subtle notes of spice and vanilla.
