Sixteen Ridge’s Winemakers Reserve Pinot Noir Early has been taken from a selection of only the best barrels from 2018 a vintage widely regarded as the best that UK wine has ever had. This lightly coloured red has a rich and floral nose, with a palate of cherry and summer fruit, leading to a long, complex, vanilla laced finish. While perfectly suitable for drinking on its own, we suggest pairing with duck, lamb, or game.

Sixteen Ridges vineyard was planted in 2007 on an ancient ridge and furrow field (hence Sixteen Ridges). South facing and a natural amphitheatre shape, it enjoys a perfect aspect with excellent shelter. Here their multi award winning Pinot Noir, used in their sparkling and much sought after red wines, thrive. Redbank vineyard was planted in 2012 by the passionate, knowledgeable and pioneering hand of growers Cilla and Tim. It is located on the south-facing slopes of the Wall Hills; where in the 13th century St Thomas Cantilupe, the last English Saint, is recorded to have demanded the re-planting of vines. A testament to this spot’s history and heritage as an exceptional site for vines.
