2017 PINOT NOIR, Diamond Fields, Davenport. Sussex, EnglandOrganic
Alcohol Percentage: 12%
Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir; destemmed (without crushing the berries) and fermented with natural yeast for 8 days, before pressing. Matured in old French oak barriques for 9 months. Un-filtered – some bottles have a slight sediment.
Producer: Davenport Vineyards is based at Horsmonden in Kent, founded in 1991, converting to organic in 2000. They have around 20 acres - one of the UK’s most important organic producers.
Old Bridge Rating: By some distance, the most impressive English red wine we have tried. Burgundian both on the nose and palate - with restrained red fruit aromatics and a combination of delicacy and structure. Not remotely in the easy-drinking style of New World Pinot, this is a wine to enjoy with food or to cellar and see how its spicy complexity will develop.
