The first ever English red wine to win a Gold Medal at the International Wine Challenge. The grapes come from an outstanding lot in Kent, where maximum ripeness has been achieved in the Pinot Meunier grapes. It is unusual to see Pinot Meunier vinified on its own as a still red wine, but this example will almost certainly encourage more. With minimal filtration and no fining, the winemaker Owen Elias has really let the grapes do the talking. The wine has gorgeous smokey mulberry, blackberry, raspberry, redcurrant and spice flavours, with soft and balanced tannins. It’s clear that this was a worthy winner of its Gold Medal.
www.jancisrobinson.com review: Cherry-wood smoke over raspberry jam. Fragrant, ethereal, breathy cigar wisping and curling gossamer ribbons around dried cranberries and redcurrants. A lick of driftwood, a whiff of mushroom compost and black truffle, then tissue-paper layers of cedar-cigar spice and smoked cherry skin and silky, translucent red fruit. Exquisitely sketched and framed with the power and delicacy of Japanese Edo artworks. If Brexit means we have to drink more wines like this, I could come round. 17.5/20 (Tamlyn Currin)
