Case of Cabernet Noir


Cabernet Noir × 6

Cabernet Noir


THE GRAPE - 100% English Cabernet Noir grapes grown on the estate. A Swiss hybrid of Cabernet Sauvignon and an unknown variety develop by Valentin Blattner in 1991. It is resistant to mildews so requires lower or no chemical input both in the vineyard and winery. The variety is slower growing due to its smaller leaves and canopy development. Picked late from the single plot and beautifully clean bunches. 

APPEARANCE – Midnight dark

NOSE – Dark fruit, currants, bell pepper and vanilla.

TASTE – Like a rich American Cabernet. The flavours of ripe damsons, dark fruits black and bell pepper. Potentially the fullest bodied red wine in the UK - we are very proud of the production!

COMPLEMENTS - Great in front of a warm fire or with wholesome foods

Alcohol                     13.5%

HOW IS IT MADE- By getting it into the winery quickly, removing the stems from the bunches and macerating for 10 days punching down the skins into the must encouraging the interaction with the skins and fermenting juices. One third is fermented and aged in barrel during malolactic and then on lees for 6 months. After it is racked and bottled
