£14.49

11.0% ABV
Blackcurrant, cherry and subtle all-spice notes with delicate tannins and good length

Court Garden is a family-run, single-estate vineyard and winery in East Sussex, set on a beautiful south-facing slope with the South Downs as a backdrop. The vineyard was established in the spring of 2005 and now extends to 17 acres, mainly planted with the three traditional Champagne varieties of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. In 2008 the still varieties Pinot Gris, Ortega, Dornfelder and Rondo were added. Sussex shares similar geology to north-east France, the chalk of the downs runs beneath the Channel into the Champagne region. In Sussex there is a more maritime climate which is perfect for the production of sparkling wine. In the glorious 2018 vintage, the Pinot Noir was exceptional and their red returned to a varietal Pinot Noir after 2017’s Donfelder and Pinot Noir blend. Light and fresh but complex red and black fruit aromas with a hint of all-spice and a long finish.
