Tillingham Domain Wines 2020 (500ml)
3 x 500ml bottles – one per customer.
We’re proud to announce the arrival of the very first wines made from grapes grown here at Tillingham. The culmination of four years of toil and discovery, these wines are the start of a new era for us and an indication of what lies ahead.
A very limited run, 100 x three packs (one of each wine) is available this weekend on our website. First come first served and delivered to your home within 7 days. These wines will be available to a very limited number of stockists and from the farm, either in our shop or exclusively on our restaurant list.
Field Blend One – a blend of six aromatic white varietals, from the first pick of the harvest. Grapes hand sorted then whole bunches trodden by foot. Soaked for twenty-four hours and pressed straight to five-year-old barrels for fermentation.
Racked into a stainless steel tank after three months by gravity. Occasional batonnage.
Field Blend Two – A blend of six red and white varieties, all varieties were picked on the same day, hand-sorted, destemmed and crushed. They were then co-fermented with 20% whole clusters (all varieties) for five days and pressed into a 500l Stockinger puncheon barrel. Then aged for eight months before being racked to stainless steel and bottled.
Saw Pit Pinot Meunier – Mainly Meunier with a smidge of Pinot Noir. Grapes hand-sorted, destemmed and lightly crushed. Co-fermentation with ten days on skins. Pressed in a basket press straight to a single 5-year-old barrel and aged for six months.
