Balfour Hush Heath Nouveau 2020

£20.00

12.0% ABV
An extraordinarily fresh Pinot Noir brimming with rich red autumnal fruits and delicate spice and coffee

Move over French Beaujolais Nouveau! We now have British Nouveau – and Balfour Nouveau in particular, born in Kent, the Garden of England, and released a day ahead of our friends across the Channel. …..

Balfour Nouveau 2020 is made from one particular parcel of Burgundy clone Pinot Noir, which was harvested on 23rd September – less than two months from release. Head Winemaker Fergus Elias stated: “the fruit from this parcel was so early, with a lovely strawberry jam character, that we thought we would never have a better opportunity to make a Nouveau style red wine. This fruit was the forerunner of a harvest of exceptional quality”

The result was just 1000 bottles of, in Fergus’ words, ‘an extraordinarily fresh and delicious Pinot Noir brimming with rich red autumnal fruits combined with delicate hints of spice and coffee’, and matured briefly in brand new French and American barrels for its distinctives soft oak character.
