Sedlescombe First Release
With this wine, you get a heady dose of concentrated aroma, and zesty tropical flavours of lemon-grass, grapefruit, and gooseberry. The flavours are rich and complex, but it's a bright, cheery wine that is ideal to serve alone or paired with your meal.
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.’
