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.


Vineyard
The vines grown at New Hall were carefully selected and have been planted at only
12 to 24 metres above sea level on well-sheltered, southern facing slopes of a shallow
valley. 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. Bacchus is a grape that needs to be picked
before becoming over-ripe to retain its intense and distinctive grapey flavours. The
vineyard comprises London clay soils, from the Tertiary age, with chalk concealed
below the clay deposits. The fruit is harvested by hand when it has reached optimal
maturity.


Winemaking
The fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless
steel vats at cool temperatures to retain the freshness. The wine was left on its lees for
approximately one month, adding texture, body and complexity to the resulting
wine. This was made in an unoaked style to order to retain the purity of fruit and
aromatics from the Bacchus variety.


Tasting Note
From the oldest plantation of Bacchus in England, this wine displays intense aromas
of elderflower, red apple and melon. Refreshing on the palate, with green pepper
and passion fruit notes and a refreshing minerality.
