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 is a fruity blend of Pinot Noir Précoce, Chardonnay and Riesling. The grapes were harvested from Knightor’s Portscatho vineyard with superb ripeness. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and cool fermented, the Pinot Noir Précoce in stainless steel tank, the Chardonnay and Riesling in 3rd fill French oak barrels. The base wines were blended and bottled in August 2015 where the bottles underwent secondary fermentation in bottle. Following this the wines were aged for just over 3 years, disgorged and aged for a further 6 months minimum on cork.
