Spring frosts in late April and early May slightly reduced the crop for some of our vineyard sites. We then saw an almost perfect growing season with ideal weather conditions throughout: unseasonably warm weather from late spring and into summer, a few days of rain in August and a mini heatwave in September, led to the earliest harvest in our history with little disease pressure and great, clean fruit, bursting with flavours and superb levels of ripeness. The drier than average season meant that bunch weights were smaller, so the overall yield was lower than 2018 and 2019 – a blessing after two such bumper years.
‘While the lockdown sunshine of 2020 was perfect for sipping our Still Rosé in the garden, it was also ideal for the Pinot Noir growing out in the vineyards. This year we have done it again and produced a perfectly pale pink Rosé bursting with wonderful strawberry and raspberry fruit.’
The Pinot Noir, Pinot Précoce and Pinot Meunier grapes were hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed very slowly. Fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks at cool temperatures, before the wine was given a light filtration and bottled whilst still young and vibrant.
