Category: Pinot Noir
Manufacturer: Blackbook Urban Winery
Grown nearby at Clayhill Vineyard in Essex, Blackbook pinot noir is hand-picked and hand-sorted in the vineyard. The grapes travel the short distance to their Urban Winery in Battersea and are fermented naturally in small open top wooden vats with partial whole bunch. The wine is aged in 5-10 year old Burgundy barrels for 7 months. The resulting wine has refined tannins and elegance with undertones of sour cherry, blackberry and black pepper. Unfined and unfiltered.
Pair with: Some pecorino cheese, cornichons and friends.
