2016 Litmus White Pinot

Pinot Noir, widely grown for sparkling wines in the UK, is a remarkably versatile grape variety. Litmus White Pinot is designed to celebrate this versatility.

In 2016, budburst was followed by a late frost and an extensive rainy period between mid-May and the end of June. Fortunately, unusually hot and dry conditions prevailed from mid-August through to October to yield a small yet perfectly ripened and healthy crop.

Litmus White Pinot is made from 100% Pinot Noir that was gently handled throughout the winemaking process. The wine was fermented and matured in two to five-year-old French oak barriques and remained on full lees for 11 months prior to bottling.

Pale straw in colour with some evident peach, honeysuckle and smoky characters, this complex wine displays a fullness and roundness rarely found in English wines. The palate is structured, full bodied, rich and silky with a steely backbone of acidity and layered nuances of multifaceted almost red wine characters. It will hold up to being enjoyed with hearty full flavoured dishes and cheeses.
