Producer Note

Piers Greenwood is a bit of a visionary, he planted his vineyard in Purleigh, Essex in 1969, which makes it one of the oldest in the UK. The vineyard benefits from a very special microclimate and Purleigh is one of the warmest and sunniest spots in the country. Today New Hall Vineyard has 40 hectares under vine and one of the largest plantings of Bacchus in the UK. Winemaker Piers has won the prestigious UK Winemaker of the Year Award in 2013, 2015 and 2016 and his highly acclaimed and award-winning wines showcase English Wine at its best.

Vintage

2018 saw a late budburst due to cooler weather at the beginning of the season. However, the weather warmed up which encouraged good flowering and fruit-set. The summer saw ideal growing conditions, with warm, dry weather which produced ripe grapes with naturally high sugars, lower levels of acidity and more tropical fruit flavours. Early harvest took place at the end of September. The 2018 long growing season brought the very best characters out of each of the varieties, to craft a distinctive, opulent and balanced vintage wine.

Vineyard

The vineyard is situated in the Crouch Valley wine region, which enjoys a temperate climate, warm, dry summers. The sheltered position ensures a long, growing season which allows fruit to obtain high sugar levels at maturity and to develop intense, complex aromatics. The vines are some of the oldest in the UK, so the pruning methods are adapted to the age and vigour of the vine. A strong emphasis is placed on soil health, with cultural and mechanical techniques employed in order to minimise the use of herbicides.

Winemaking

Each variety was vinified separately to showcase the key varietal and clonal characteristics. The fruit was hand-picked to maintain the highest quality, before being whole bunch pressed. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts. Ageing took place with ageing on the lees for three to four months promoting complexity and roundness to the finished wine.

Tasting Note

A unique blend, created by Steve Daniel especially for Hallgarten. Admired for their elegance and characteristic honeydew melon and peach notes, Ortega and Siegerrebe contribute intense aromatic complexity, while Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris imbue the blend with a crisp, mineral and distinctive finish.
