Producer Note
Blackbook Winery is an urban winery located in a railway arch in Battersea, South
London. Their philosophy is simple: blending tradition with innovation. The grapes are
sourced from carefully selected growers, who have vineyards within hours of the city
and high quality grapes. Blackbook endeavours to bring the hard work of the vineyard
owners to the forefront, by creating a range of single vineyard wines that showcase the
quality and potential of producing world-class still wine in England. Focussing on
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Blackbook uses a minimalist approach, with low to zero
sulphur and natural yeasts, as they seek to reflect the vibrancy, culture and energy of
London in their wines.
Vintage
A warmer and drier-than-average spring led to an early budburst. Frost damage in midMay was significant in some vineyards. Flowering took place under good conditions,
followed by a warm August which brought ripening on quickly. The harvest was one of
the earliest of modern times with reduced yields, but exceptionally high natural sugar
levels. The wines are of excellent quality.
Vineyard
The grapes come from the Crows Lane Estate single vineyard, situated on the coastal
peninsula of the Crouch Valley in Essex, between the Crouch and Blackwater Rivers.
The proximity to the rivers helps to protect the vineyard from spring frosts. The vineyard is
south facing to optimise sunlight exposure in the capricious English climate. The vines
are trained according to the double Guyot and Vertical Shoot positioning (VSP)
methods and were planted in 2017 with German Pinot Noir clones. The vineyard is
made up of London clay soils, which have high smectite content and offer good water
retention properties, storing mineral ions which are exchanged with the roots and
nourish the vines throughout summer growth period. The grapes are hand-picked into
small crates and then travel the short distance to the winery in Battersea, London.
Winemaking
The carefully selected grapes were fermented with wild, indigenous yeasts in small
open-top vats with extended post fermentation maceration, followed by indigenous
malolactic conversion. The wine was matured for 10 months on the lees in French
Burgundy barrels and was bottled without fining and filtration, to achieve a full
expression of the terroir.
