Albourne Estate Pinot Noir 2018

£17.99

12.0% ABV
Cranberry, raspberry and cherry with savoury notes

Do open this wine an hour before drinking – it is still young and takes some minutes to unfurl and release its fragrant secrets. You will find delicate but ripe red fruit aromas – cranberry, raspberry and red cherry – intermingled with more savoury notes, an almost earthy hint to it that works well in balance with the lifted fruit. On the palate, there is more of the same, lingering and developing in the mouth. Alison Nightingale began her working life in multi-national marketing before changing to a more creative, fulfilling and balanced path, setting up Albourne Estate. She selected the site of the vineyard not only for its stunning views of the South Downs, but for its slope, aspect, altitude and geology: tracing the beautiful south-facing slope of a low ridge created by underlying Cretaceous green sandstone. These features provide excellent drainage, low frost risk and maximum sun exposure. Albourne grow seven grape varieties planted across multiple clones and rootstock.
