This is the second release from Chris Wilson’s wildly stylish Gutter & Stars project. Unique in look and concept, Chris’s urban winery is based within the basement of a Grade II listed windmill in Cambridge.
The ruby-red hues correlate with a vibrant red nose of raspberry, cherry and pepper and a twist of toasted spices.
On release, this is a punchy Pinot, seducing with its youthful and tangy wild raspberry, cranberry and cherry. The fruit is quite crunchy and bursting with freshness, but there’s also a nice bit of grip and suggestion of savoury undergrowth.
