Stopham Pinot Gris
Firstly, Stopham Estate Pinot Gris is off-dry, with aromatic peach and pear fruit alongside the floral character on the nose. On the palate, this has excellent balance with crisp acidity. It is fairly full in body, with plenty of juicy fruit intensity, but is refreshing and long, with a lively citrus and stone fruit finish. Stopham Estate Pinot Gris is excellent with spicy dishes and roast pork.
Simpsons Rabbit Hole
Secondly, Simpsons Rabbit Hole Pinot Noir is deep crimson in colour with redcurrant, blueberry and exotic spice aromas. This wine has silky tannins and black fruit flavours, with undertones of freshly ground coffee. Pairs exceptionally well with venison and other game.
Thirdly, the Woodchurch Rosé is made from Pinot Noir Burgundy clones 828 and 943. The grapes are all grown on the single estate vineyard in Woodchurch, Kent. The winemaker is the talented Mattheiu Elzinga of Litmus Wines, who is known for producing epic still wines. Salmon pink in colour, this rosé displays fresh red berries and cream on the nose. On the palate, the strawberries and cream flavours continue, with a vibrant, dry and refreshing acidity, that leads to a balanced and long-lived finish.
Next, our very own Elizabeth Rosé. This wine is bursting with strawberries, cream and delicate hints of peach. A slightly deeper colour than the ever popular Provence rosé, but don’t judge a wine by it’s colour! This rosé is just as delicate as your favourite Provence. The wine pairs perfectly with delicious summer salads, salmon, chicken and risotto. Sip with friends on a hot summers day, or curl up with a glass in front of the fire – this wine is perfect for all seasons.
Biddenden Ortega is semi-aromatic on the nose, and displays appealing fresh aromas of green apple, grapefruit, cut grass and flora, whilst the palate is medium bodied, crisp, characterful and deliciously fruity. This wine is delicious when served as an aperitif, this refreshing white would also pair well with lightly spicy dishes and simple seafood.
Litmus Element 20
Finally, Element 20 2014 departs from the usual blend of Bacchus and Chardonnay. This wine consists of 35% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Gris and 30% Pinot Blanc. Complex, mature, elegant and stylish – this silky smooth, rich and full-bodied wine has perfectly balanced acidity and will improve for years to come.
