This Pinot Noir was picked with excellent ripeness levels and fantastic fruit flavours. It is a light bodied fruity red with cherry, strawberry and spice on the nose. The palate is light and full of juicy red fruits. Perfect on its own or with a wide range of foods. Serve at 16 degrees or slightly chilled depending on preference. These grapes were crushed into open topped fermenters where they were fermented at relatively cool temperatures to give the wine freshness and avoid over extraction. During fermentation the cap was gently punched down a couple of times a day with keen eye to the level of extraction from the fruit. After fermentation the cap was gently pressed and the wine was stored for 10 months, 60% in French oak barrels the remainder in tank. Bottled unfiltered and unfined. Knightor make premium quality, limited production English wines from grapes grown in English vineyards and their own vines at Portscatho and Seaton on the south Cornish coast.
