Grape Pinot Noir
Producer Bolney Wine Estate
Winemaker Samantha Linter Bottle size 75cl
These vineyards are situated on a hill which was part of the Butting Hill One Hundred, listed in the Doomsday Book. In the 1800s the Prince Regent would often visit on his way to Brighton. The current estate was planted by Janet and Rodney Pratt in 1972 with just three acres of vines. They now have 39 acres and a splendid lady winemaker. They have won many medals and were voted UK Wine Producer of the Year in 2012.
This is a great tasting note from a write up in Red magazine. ‘Fantastic example of a cool climate Pinot, made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. It has a good light to medium body, full of red cherry, bacon and hints of cedar wood, which give a lovely complexity on the bouquet and palate. Goes extremely well with creamy dishes made with lots of butter, soft or mild cheese like brie and goats cheese.’
