Named after Hush Heath Estate's 16th century Manor House, this beautiful Pinot Noir is perhaps the best proof yet that England can make delicious red wines, too!
Although the Pinot Noir planted in 2002 was originally intended to be for the creation of our sparkling wines, a warming climate and increased experience has meant we've been able to produce delicious still Pinot Noir for the last three vintages. The wine undergoes a short and fairly cool fermentation on its skins and a small proportion of the blend is aged in new American oak. This results in a wonderfully soft and fruit-forward style.
