Paradox - White Pinot Noir 2021

Bottle notes

This unusual and quite rare still white wine is made by pressing (red) Pinot Noir grapes very gently so as not to extract colour from the skins - the flesh itself is green-white. It was then fermented and aged for 10 months in old oak barrels - no dominant oak flavours just a bit of spice and mid palate nuttiness. The resulting wine, which is a lovely light copper colour, has notes of ripe apple and pear, some red fruit and roses, spice and something a bit ‘earthier’. The pallet is fairly full with a hint of creaminess, and balancing but not overbearing acidity. It will age well, and certainly will develop over the next year or two. 

Only just over 1000 bottles were made, and the number of bottles per tonne of fruit is much lower than most wines. The grapes came from two Essex vineyards, Martin’s Lane and Bromley Brook. It is a fascinating, unusual and beautiful wine.
