Musky aromas with hints of orange blossom on the nose, the palate is richly textured and weighty with good focus and length. With age the wine will develop a lovely toasted almond, rich baked caramel and apple tart character.
"Our aim in the vineyard is to grow the best fruit we can so it can speak of its home and express its personality. To do this you need healthy vines and soil. By practicing organics and incorporating some biodynamic principles we believe we are doing our best to help achieve this and let our vineyards evolve and speak as they would like.
Hand harvested whole bunch pressed, using free run juice only, the juice is lightly settled then fermented predominantly in stainless steel with cultured yeast - 12% of the juice went into 3-year-old puncheons to ferment naturally. Being part of the Pinot family we need to treat it in the vineyard as we would any other Pinot variety: sympathetically, worked by hand, low crops to keep balance in the fruit. This variety has quite a tight bunch so needs good canopy management to control disease. As with all Pinot varieties, the work in the vineyard is proportional to the quality of fruit you will get. Pinot Blanc is a more neutral style of wine, and the shyest of all the Pinot family: typically it has subtle aromatics so the winemaker's hand is a little more evident with this variety. The Rock Ferry style is generous, with palate texture, and as a food friendly wine, its flavours are understated. We say it's a quiet achiever."
Zesty Dry White Wines
Like a lightning bolt in your mouth, whites in this style are the wine equivalent to a refreshing lager. Generally speaking, they’re best enjoyed young, within a year or two of the vintage, to preserve the fresh fruity flavours and mouth-watering acidity.
