Knightor Winery Pinot Noir Précoce 2018

£18.99

12.0% ABV
Rich and fruity, wild strawberry, morello cherry, smoky wood

Knightor’s Pinot Noir Précoce is fruit forward, showing morello cherry, wild strawberry and a slight smokiness on the nose. The grapes from Knightor’s Portscatho vineyard were harvested in perfect condition on the 20 September 2018. The grapes were de-stemmed and crushed into tank where they fermented on the skins for 10 days. After fermentation was completed the wine was racked, over 60% placed into old French oak barrels and the remainder in stainless steel tank. The wine was aged for over 10 months before being bottled unfiltered and unfined. One of the stand-outs of the 2018 vintage. Pinot Noir Précoce displays slightly different characters to Pinot Noir but both are light wines. The palate is medium bodied and soft showing ample juicy red berry characters, a very moreish wine. Serve at 16 °c. 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.
