|Exciting news from Sumaridge Estate as not only is the 2019 harvest underway but they are also taking advantage of the latest winemaking techniques using gravity (rather than mechanical pumps) in the fermentation of their famous Pinot Noir. Using gravity rather than force means the extraction of colour, tannin and flavour is a more natural, gentle process resulting a more delicate, nuanced wine.
|The Chardonnay has just been handpicked from the best blocks of the vineyard; selected again in the cellar, destemmed and gently crushed. Simon tastes their juice less than three hours after the grapes were picked!
|To celebrate the start of the harvest – described by Sumaridge winemaker Walter Pretorius as an exciting year for both the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – and as it is the 2019 vintage we are offering a 19% discount across the two wines.
