Named after Arlington cottages in Bibury, this delicious red wine is handpicked and produced by the multi award winning Poulton Hill Vineyard. Deep ruby in appearance, with a beautiful nose of cherry, blackberry and hints of strawberry. The palate is bursting with English red berries, further dark cherry and damson at the forefront, and hints of raspberry. Subtle oak and soft tannin make for a wonderfully well balanced finish.£17.00
Our Pinot Noir comes from a small Hacienda in Maule. Traditionally fruit farmers, the Moreno Family diversified into wine. The story goes that after a Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot tasting, our winemaker Eric Monnin was served strawberries from the estate. He commented how delicious they were and if they could grow strawberries of this quality, then they must be able to grow Pinot Noir. Low and behold they had already begun working with the varietal and Eric tasted their beautiful Pinot Noir for the first time. The vineyards sit in the shadow of the El Dezcabazado volcano and the resulting soils are both rocky and fertile. Maule s in the southern part of the Central Valley and temperatures here are much cooler than further north. Pinot flourishes in this environment and enjoys the healthy conditions where it can usually ripen without damp. The cooler temperatures allow it to retain crucial acidity which helps provide balance to the ripe fruit. No oak is used. TASTING NOTE A delicate and elegant Pinot Noir showing ripe fruit flavours of plums and wild strawberries, balanced with subtle smoky notes and a deliciously lingering finish. VEGAN WINE **£9.00
The first explorers across the great oceans were greeted by the long white cloud which told them that they had at last sighted New Zealand. The long white clouds still bear the precious rain that, through the marvellous mechanic of the vine, is distilled by nature into this perfect Pinot Noir. VEGAN WINE **£14.00
