Knightor winery, Pinot Noir

£16.00

Description

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 Pinot Noir was picked with exceptional ripeness levels and fantastic fruit flavours. These grapes were crushed into open topped fermenters where they were fermented at relatively cool temperatures to give the wine freshness and avoid over extraction. During fermentation the cap was gently punched down a couple of times a day with keen eye to the level of extraction from the fruit. After fermentation the cap was gently pressed and the wine was stored for 10 months 60% in French oak barrels the remainder in tank.

The palate is light and full of juicy red fruits with fresh cherries and strawberries. Perfect on its own or with a wide range of foods. Serve at 16C or slightly chilled depending on preference. Bottled unfiltered and unfined.
