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.
Secondly, the Nutbourne Hedgerow is the only off-dry wine in the Nutbourne range, made from a blend of Riesling-style German varietals (including some forty-year-old vines), retaining some residual sugars. The Nutbourne Hedgerow is beautifully well rounded, with a big wildflower bouquet and lots of hedgerow fruits and elderflower. Being a little sweeter, it is a very moreish wine!
Thirdly, Simpsons Derringstone gives wonderful aromas of balsamic-poached winter fruit and citrus-peel. Succulent and creamy-textured wine, with a crisply-mineral finish. Match with smoked salmon blinis, sushi, or a leek and parmesan tart.
Giffords Hall Bacchus
Next, Giffords Hall Bacchus has full fresh aromas of punchy green fruit, hedgerow and elderflower. With a hint of lychee this full fruity wine is, surprisingly dry and pairs really well with pesto, fish, cheese and mildly spicy dishes. Giffords Hall Bacchus is a sure winner as an aperitif.
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, rich, full bodied wine has a balancing acidity that will ensure that even further complexity is achieved in years to follow.
