New Hall Wine Estate Barons Lane White 2021

Producer Note
Rich in viticultural heritage, the first vineyards were planted in Purleigh, Essex in the
Middle-Ages, where the vines flourished and supplied The Crown. Bill and Sheila
Greenwood established the New Hall Wine Estate and planted their vines in Purleigh in
1969, which makes it one of the oldest commercial vineyards in the UK. The vineyard
benefits from a special microclimate as Purleigh is one of the warmest and sunniest
spots in the country, making it ideal for premium viticulture. The New Hall Wine Estate
has 49 hectares under vine, one of the largest plantings of Bacchus in the UK and an
impressive newly-built estate winery. The family-run estate is now in the hands of the
third generation. The young, dynamic and internationally experienced team continue
the family tradition of nurturing the grapes from the vine to glass, to produce awardwinning wines which showcase English Wine at its very best.
Vintage
The 2021 vintage was not without its challenges. Cooler weather resulted in late
budburst and consequently a later harvest than usually expected. The weather was
cool towards the latter stages of ripening and as a result the vines produced fruit with
vibrant acidity and zesty citrusy notes which result in a refreshing, mouthwatering
blend.
Vineyard
The vines are planted on sheltered southern facing slopes in the Crouch Valley. The big
skies with low rainfall and coastal breezes offer ideal climatic conditions. The vineyard is
made up of London clay soils, from the Tertiary age, with chalk concealed below the
clay deposits. Over the years this site has proven itself to be an almost ideal place for
the growing of vines in England, producing above average crops of high quality
grapes with naturally high sugars each year. The fruit for the Baron’s Lane white comes
from the heritage vines that were planted during the 1970s and 1980s and each parcel
of heritage vines are pruned in a bespoke and reactive manner, to ensure they retain
optimal health, a balanced crop and longevity. The blend includes grape varieties
which thrive in the English terroir: Schonburg, a crossing between Pinot Noir and
Pirovano 1, which produces aromatic floral and lightly spiced flavours, Pinot Blanc and
Huxelrebe, which produces aromatic, fragrant flavours. The fruit is harvested by hand
when it has reached maturity.
Winemaking
The fruit was fermented in the brand new winery at the estate. The grapes underwent a
cool, steady fermentation in stainless steel tanks with carefully selected yeast strains
which were hand-picked to complement and enhance the characteristics of each
parcel and bring out the natural aromas and retain the pure varietal characteristics.
Tasting Note
