2021 Vintage Tasting - Tank & Barrel - 27th November - 2.30pm
Time & Location
About the Event
We have JUST finished the 2021 harvest. It's been our biggest and longest to date. 11 vineyards, 5 countries and 14 grape varieties. Around 78,000kg give or take. It's been a very long and challenging one with higher acid, lower sugar, lower yields but a few lovely surprises too!
Fancy tasting a number of the wines as they are now? This is your chance to taste wines straight after the harvest before they've aged, been in barrel for long, and are finished. These wines are between 4 to 10 weeks ago. They're young!
We will also taste a few of these wines from the 2019 and 2020 vintage too so you can see how they change and evolve in bottle/barrel.
My guess is we'll taste around 10 wines in total, but it could be a few more, or a few less, depending on what we take from tank/barrel (and maybe bottle - e.g. 2021 pet nat).
As a taster of what we 'may' show you (subject to change - there are more than this, too many to write):
2021 Cabernet Sauvignon (High Altitude Penedes, Spain)
2021 Malvasia Skin Contact (Puglia, Italy)
2021 Sauvignon Blanc (Pfalz, Germany)
2021 Chardonnay (Essex, England)
2021 Pinot Noir Rosé (Essex, England)
2021 Bacchus (Herefordshire, England)
2021 Rosé Blend (Cab Sav/Pinot Noir)
2021 & 2020 Pinot Noir (Lombardy, Italy)
2021 & 2019 Sangiovese (Puglia, Italy)
2021 & 2020 Croatina Nat Fizz (Lombardy, Italy)
Come with an open mind. This is a risky thing for a winery to do, to be honest. These wines are not ready so may be a little strange/raw/unusual. But we're just keen to share the tasting and making insights.
Fancy it? :)
