Wine

Albariño Bacchus 2013 – BUY

A brilliant pale white gold with green highlights. The nose suggests orange peel, peach and apricot, mixed with an English hedgerow reflecting its unique parentage. The acid is crisp but well balanced and firm. A touch of tannin with a pithy citrus character, a long and rewarding finish. The wine has been bottle aged prior to release.

Fat Fumé 2014 – BUY

A unique and delicious lightly oaked English Bacchus. Light green gold in colour. The nose is clean, rose petal, subtly spicy. The palate is dry and rich, peach, ripe gooseberry and lime in a delightfully complex riot of flavours. A long citrus and spicy finish.

The Bacchus 2014 – BUY

Made from the ripest Bacchus grapes. A dry, rich and refreshing wine, the colour of new mown hay. Distinctively classic grassy and nettle nose. The palate explodes with floral and citrus flavours with a lingering crisp finish.

White Pinot Noir 2014 – BUY

An unusual Pinot Noir, made from the carefully pressed white juice of English grown Pinot Noir grapes producing an aromatic and spicy still white wine. The wine is very pale rose gold in colour with delicate gold highlights. The nose is vinous, hints of cooked strawberries and pepper. 2014 was a beautifully ripe vintage which is reflected in the rich and balanced palate held together with crisp English acidity. An excellent food wine to accompany chorizo, pork, sausages, cassoulet and robust salads.

Kingscote Cuvée Christen NV – BUY

Brilliant pale gold with pink highlights reflecting this unique assemblage of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc grown and vinified on the Kingscote Estate. Swirls of fine bubbles with a prolonged mousse. The nose is fresh and clean with citrus and lime leaf notes. The palate is rich with crisp English acidity, balanced, intense apple, lemon, hints of white chocolate. The finish is refreshing, lemony with hints of rhubarb. An invigorating aperitif style fizz.

“Kingscote’s first ever estate sparkling wine has been produced using a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Blanc grapes. This youthful, fresh and distinctive wine pays tribute to inspirational founder Christen Monge and will be named in his memory.” Owen Elias, Kingscote executive winemaker
