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 four vintages. The wine undergoes a short and fairly cool fermentation on its skins, followed by six months ageing in new American and French oak barrels. This results in a soft, fruit-forward style, complemented by a touch of sweet spice & tannin.
