Limney Estate Diamond Fields Pinot Noir
We have been lucky enough to secure a small parcel of Will Davenport's Pinot Noir which is usually reserved for his delicious Sparkling wines. The Diamond Fields site was planted in 2000 and has been organic since the start. It produces very low yields of really ripe grapes with good colour and fantastic flavours. This organic Pinot Noir was made as naturally as possible with no filtration, limited use of sulphur, no fining, whole berry fermentation (destemmed), maturation in old oak barriques for six months.The result is a dark colour and substantial body for a Pinot Noir (especially English Pinot Noir), lots of cherry fruit and a really long finish. It has a smooth balance without any marked acidity and it will age for a few years in bottle. (Limited stock)
Winner - Soil Association BOOM Awards 2016 (2014 vintage)
Will Davenport started planting grape vines in 1991, carefully selecting two sites in south-east England’s High Weald. In 2000 both vineyard sites were registered for organic management with the Soil Association, making Davenport Vineyards one of only three commercial UK vineyards to become exclusively organic.
