Sumaridge Pinot Noir

Sumaridge Estate Wines

£137.70per case of 6

Tasting Notes:

A stunning improvement on a classic Pinot Noir with exciting darker fruit notes. It combines rich flavours of black cherry with smoky spice and savouriness to deliver a luxurious wine with a silky finish.

Food Pairing:

Its savoury character naturally suits medium meat dishes of venison and pork. The richness brings out the best in most game dishes, particularly complimenting duck, pheasant and even seared tuna.

PLEASE NOTE: This purchase is for a case of 6 bottles (£22.95 per bottle)

Wine Making

All grapes hand sorted with a policy of “if in doubt chuck it out!” in order to refine the careful bunch selection done in the vineyard. Mostly whole berry cold soak for gentle extraction with a portion of ripe stalks returned to the must. Separate parcels are selected and treated individually using both cultivated and spontaneous fermentation, in stainless closed fermenters and large oak vats. Batches are pressed separately to barrel and matured for 10 months. The bottled wine is cellared for at least a year before release.
