Gusbourne Pinot Noir ‘Boot Hill’ 2016, Ashford England

£32.50

Gusbourne estate is located just six miles off the cost in Appledore, Ashford. The 200ha estate possesses plantings of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, and Pinot Noir. In 2013 they were awarded the IWSC English producer of the year, and their wines have gone from strength to strength. In 2018 we proudly announced a partnership with Gusbourne which involved the estate producing a unique sparkling wine exclusive for Waddesdon.

Tasting notes

This Pinot Noir is produced in tiny parcel using fruit exclusively from Gusbourne’s Boot Hill vineyard. The notion that English vineyards cannot produce quality still wine should be firmly banished upon tasting this wine. The nose, thanks to maturation in French oak, boasts a pretty array of cranberry and raspberry with a delicate earthy note. The palate, whilst being nimble, offers layers of earthy red fruit with nicely judged spice and perfectly balanced acidity. Bravo to the team at Gusbourne, this is one of England’s finest still wines!
