Classic Pinot Meunier 2017, Oxney Organic Estate, England
This is a website only product, which might mean a couple of day's delay in getting it to you (as we do not store it in our tiny shop).
This is a limited release from Oxney (only 533 bottles produced) which we have stored carefully for another couple of years since its release.
A beautiful rendition of the least celebrated of the three main Champagne grapes - Pinot Meunier - from an organic estate on the Kent/Sussex border near Rye.
Fermented in oak, which contributes toasty, spicy notes; lees stirring has intensified the autolytic flavours (pastry, brioche, that kind of thing...)
Here's what Oxney say about this long sold-out sparkling wine: "We can safely say that no other Oxney wine has generated so many out-there tasting notes. Christmas cake, bakewell tart and frozen cherry yoghurt are our favourite descriptions so far. And the texture almost defies the laws of physics, somehow managing to flit from tangy and pure to soft and creamy in the course of a single sip. "
