The Winery by Laneberg Wine is Tyneside’s first Urban Winery. They handcraft wine from grapes grown in England with minimal intervention to let the true character of the grapes shine through.
93% Pinot Noir and 7% Rondo grapes from Somborne Valley vineyard, Hampshire.
Crushed and destemmed, then fermented at 25°C in stainless steel using Laffort Zymaflore RB4 yeast, with regular pump-overs. Fermentation took approx. eight days, with four days extra maceration post ferment to maximise flavour. Pressed in hydraulic basket press. Aged in old French oak for four months and then filtered and bottled at the winery.
Pinot Noir 2020 is a pale red wine with red fruit aromas and flavours such as wild strawberry, raspberry, and redcurrant. With subtle smoky spice from the five months in French oak barrels.
Give it a whirl with patatas bravas, wild mushroom omlete, cold turkey & ham pie with cranberry topping or an Italian brunch torte!
