Diamond Fields Pinot Noir 2018

£19.95Price

English organic Pinot Noir, grown on a south facing sandy clay soil site. The grapes are 50% destemmed (without cruching the berries) and fermented with natural yeast for a 10 days before pressing. Fermenting juice from the press is moved straight into oak barrels (barrels are between 5 and 20 years old) where it completes fermentation. The wine is then matured in old oak barriques for 9 months before bottling. We bottle without filtration and this wine may have a slight sediment in the bottle.

The 2018 vintage was one of the ripest years we have ever seen, with flavours of cherries and blackberry, a good dark colour and plenty of depth. It can be drunk now, or kept for up to 3 years to develop more complex flavours and a mellow character. Some hints of oak may emerge after a year or so. It benefits from opening a hour or two (or more) before you want to drink it.
