East Sussex, England
Sedlescombe Vineyard- 2015/16
A lush and seductive white with a full-on fruity palate married with complex flavours and a smooth texture. Produced from Reichensteiner, Kerner and Faber grapes and named after a single vineyard at Bodiam Castle. Medium dry with a classic sherbet zesty finish with just the right amount of sweetness.
In 1974, Roy Cook inherited 4 hectares of land near Sedlescombe, East Sussex. He began a new life, setting out to grow sufficient organic food to feed himself plus a surplus that could be turned into cash to meet his other needs. As with many dreams of this kind, the lifestyle proved very hard… Necessity, being as always the mother of invention, Roy set out to utilise his land in other ways. ‘The land I owned was on a south-facing slope, exposed to the sun and I had all the right conditions for growing vines.’
