Pale straw in colour with some evident peach, honeysuckle and smoky characters. Litmus White Pinot is made from 100% Pinot Noir that was gently handled throughout the winemaking process. The wine was fermented and matured in 2-5 year old French oak barriques and remained on full lees for nine months prior to bottling. This complex wine displays a fullness and roundness rarely found in English wines. The palate is structured, full bodied, rich and silky with a steely backbone of acidity and layered nuances of multifaceted almost red wine characters. It will hold up to being enjoyed with hearty full flavoured dishes and cheeses. John Worontschak is the chief wine maker, who has developed the Litmus wines range. John has been making English wine since 1988. In 2010 John decided to create the first Litmus wine, Element 20; the concept was to move away from the traditional fruity and often one dimensional English wine styles. The Litmus range is a culmination of John’s experience and the wines are designed to highlight the very best of cool climate English style wines, promoting balance, complexity and length of flavour.
