Knightor Winery, Mena Hweg



Knightor Winery outside St Austell makes premium quality, limited production wines from grapes grown in English vineyards and their own vines at Portscatho and Seaton on the south Cornish coast. They planted their first vines in 2007 and made their first wine in 2010.

This wine is inspired by the great wines of Germany, particularly the Mosel’s Kabinett and Spätlese styles. Because of the wines low alcohol and due to the sometimes peculiar PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) rules of the UK/EU, we are unable to refer to the grape type on the label. Therefore, Knightor derived the name from the Cornish translation for the grape Schönburger, which means ‘pretty/sweet hill’. Mena = hill, Hweg = nice/sweet.
The wine is light green in the glass with delicate floral, citrus and peach like aromas. Although the wine carries a residual sugar of 38g/l, it is well balanced by the grapes natural acidity, giving a tension and vibrancy to the palate. The finish is clean and crisp, rather than cloying.
