I had the pleasure of tasting all seven vintages of Litmus’s brilliant White Pinot Noir this month, and will soon be posting a full article in my English Vertical Series very soon. This is a delicious white wine made from red Pinot Noir grapes.
This current 2016 release was one of the highlights, with an opulent nose of peach, red apple and hints of vanilla cream and ice cream soda.
There’s a lovely richness and roundness to this Litmus. There’s a medley of peach, apricot and hints of cranberry, but it’s the butterscotch and caramelised peach, seasoned with a bit of spiced oak on the finish, that really stands out. Superb.
A brilliantly complex, maverick Orange Bacchus that was fermented on skins for 16 weeks.
A hugely distinctive and compelling wine with complex aromas of tropical fruit, grass and herbs.
A remarkably developed Chardonnay-rich white blend with stunning citrus cut through & wondrous textures.
Distinctive and elegant, a rather excellent and balanced wine.
A rich luxurious White Pinot Noir with white Burgundy like texture and weight.
An outstanding English white wine with lots of depth and texture.
