This so carefully selected blend of Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Pinot gris has a lovely fragrance and a freshness that delivers a real sense of pristine orchard fruit flavours underpinned by citrus zest and hints of brioche. The longer lees aging has given it a gentle weight so that it fills the mouth with creamy bubbles and eddies of entrancing flavours.
A unique one-off, personally blended by Gerard Fox from the 2014 wines in tank. This was his inspiring idea. We tasted and tested the wine in January 2019 and, because we thought it was worth it: we left it for an extra year on lees compared with all our other 2014 wines.
