Charles Palmer Vineyards is a family run wine estate at Winchelsea in Sussex. The estate’s vineyards benefit from an ideal climate for vines, with its close proximity to the sea, south facing slope, and its terroir in particular. The lowest part of the vineyard is a mere 5 metres from sea level and sits above a bed of Kimmeridgian clay similar to the Grand Crus of Burgundy. Their vines were first planted in 2006 specifically with the aim of producing a sparkling wine of the highest standard. Production is small and meticulous.
Made using the 777 Burgundy clone Pinot Noir grapes. This Red wine is fully fermented on the skins in order to extract the delicate flavours of bright red and black fruits, with a silky finish. They do not age in oak, this allows the wine to display fantastic purity of fruit.
A match for wood pigeon, rabbit stew, mushroom risotto or a pork burger in a bun with chunky chips
