Ripe blackberries & black cherries; sweet spices and a persistent finish

A youthful blend of Pinot Noir (82%) and Regent (18%). Bright and vivid ruby red colour with violet hints; aromas of red fruits with a hint of blueberry overlaid with subtle notes of vanillin oak. Notes of spice, fresh earth and minerals start to develop on decanting. Bright, sweet cherry and berry notes are apparent on the palate; a vibrant acidity and subtle creamy oak marks the finish. Decant and leave for an hour to heighten the black cherry and fruit flavours with a satisfyingly long finish. Can also be served slightly chilled. Woodchester Valley is a family owned boutique vineyard and winery in the South Cotswolds. They have three vineyard sites in the Stroud valleys which produce a range of still white, rose and sparkling wines. They are located in Amberley, Woodchester and Doverow Hill (Stonehouse), with a total of 45 acres under vine. Woodchester Valley was established in 2007 when a single acre was planted on their Amberley site to assess the suitability of the land for growing vines. The three sites have different soil profiles although are all predominantly limestone. The Woodchester and Amberley sites are typical of Cotswold brash – shallow soils with a high stone content overlying Oolitic limestone, particularly favourable for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines. These soils are very free-draining. Their Stonehouse site has a higher clay content and deeper soils well-suited for their Bacchus vines.
