A serious wine with 5 years lees ageing that had rounded it out to balance the tingling acidity and complement the grapefruit and green apple flavours with a lemon shortbread mellowness. A suitably long finish leaves your mouth watering and keen for another sip to explore the many dimensions of this wine. It was 100% fermented in oak barrels and Foudre with an elevage of over 12 months for the base wine. Ancre Hill Estates is located in the Welsh county of Monmouthshire. The 12 hectares of vineyards are perfectly positioned on south facing slopes close to the border town of Monmouth and the Wye Valley.
