Pinot Noir, Danbury Ridge, Essex, England 2021
Regular price £45.90
Remarkable concentration and spice on the nose. On the palate, intense blackcurrant coulis softened by redcurrant, moss, orange and clove. The tannins are almost chocolatey – mouth-coating, yet never harsh. Incredibly long and persistent, finishing plush and soft.Red Pinot Noir 13%
Located in the warmest, dried area of the UK, the first vineyards were planted at Danbury Ridge in 2014, and 2018 was their debut vintage. And as Jancis Robinson said, "what a debut!" The focus here has, and always will be still wines, and with the Essex climate, and the ripeness levels the grapes are reaching, one can certainly see why. Under the guidance of highly talented winemaker Liam Idzikowski, Danbury Ridge have raised the bar exponentially for English still wine.
