Yes, it’s the 2020 vintage! I say that because I haven’t found it in stock anywhere. When I bought this from an agency in 2021 there were so few available I was only allowed to buy 4 bottles. I had originally thought I would hold onto these for myself but that’s not why I’m in this business. I want you to enjoy great wines. So buy this, cellar it or drink it, but just enjoy it, life is short.

Rose gold with an ethereal shimmer. A highly aromatic nose with magnolia and elderflower notes. On the palette tons of stone fruit with a good grip from the maceration and bright acidity which underpins a lasting finish.

Vinification –50% Ortega 50% Auxerrois. 20% of the total blend had 3 days skin contact, then fermented in stainless steel, the rest of the blend was whole bunch pressed and also fermented in a stainless steel tank. After alcoholic fermentation all the components were blended, and 10% of the blend went into old french barrels. Bottled after 6 month of ageing. Drink now or can be cellared for a further 2 years.


ABV 11%

Ben Walgate grew up on a farm on the Lincolnshire Wolds, and his immersion in rural life from a young age has had a strong influence on his approach to wine… an interest which in turn was derived after visiting his first vineyard in Burgundy (one that is now certified biodynamic) aged 22. He knew immediately that he wanted to work with wine and immersed himself in various parts of the trade including winemaking and vineyard management, import and sales. His goal however was always to realise the original dream of owning and operating a small farm with a vineyard at its core. The farm he has found to start this project totals 70 acres, on which he intends to farm livestock and agro-forestry as well as the vines, of which five acres or so are going in to start with, with up to 30 acres possible in due course.
