We're delighted to present "In A Storm," our fortified Pinot Noir. This treat is made from grapes grown on the Martinborough Terrace with 16 months in old French oak, quietly building tempo until its release.
This wine was part of a dream long considered and emanated from the depth of lockdown 1.0 We picked a block of old vine Pinot really late and introduced fortifying spirit to arrest fermentation and retain a modest amount of sweetness.
This is much drier than traditional Ports but does have a noticeable sweetness, the alcohol is also a touch lower than most port at the bare minimum to bring stability 17.9%.
No added sulphites. Just 300 bottles produced.
