Crisp and refreshing, this dry white follows the Italian tradition of blending ‘all white’ varieties to create the best field blend of the season. It’s the white wine of our hills and speaks of the land on which it’s grown.
The 2016 vintage began with a relatively cooler winter and early spring. However the late spring and summer saw mean maximum temperatures 2 degrees more than normal although minimum temperatures remained typical. This day time heat, coupled with 7 inches less rain in the growing season moved harvest to some of the earliest dates on record. Late reds in particular moved one month earlier than long term trends. The unusual heat of the summer saw the fruit develop lovely rich fruit flavours and the normal minimum temperature ensured good acidity retention. Allover a cracking year for the bigger reds and all whites more powerful than normal.
Made from a blend of Savarro, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Viognier from our Hexham Vineyard.
