English Pinot Duo
This pair of English Pinot Noirs – one white and one red – make an exquisite gift for any wine aficionado.
The “very stylish” red was awarded 92 points by wine critic Dr Jamie Goode and he praised it as “one of the best Pinot Noirs I’ve tried from the UK.” It was also hailed by The Independent as one of the “best English red wines”, and that was before Litmus released the vintage in our case. 2018 is widely acknowledged to be one the greatest vintages ever in England, making this probably one the finest still red wines the country has created. Brimming with flavours of ripe red cherry, strawberry, raspberry, woody mulling spices and something akin to an autumn walk in a forest of oak and pine trees, it’s a fantastically versatile food wine.
Joining the red, is the rare Litmus White Pinot, made from 100% Pinot Noir that was gently handled throughout the winemaking process so that no colour was extracted. One of the most intriguing English white wines you’ll ever taste, it presents appealing aromas of spice, honey, blossom and melon, while the palate displays flavours of spiced green apples and mango, plus some smoky toastiness. Rich, smooth and silky, this white has enough oomph and refreshing acidity to cut through any feast.
Litmus Wines is without doubt one of the most exciting producers in England. Where most vineyards have concentrated on sparkling wine production, Litmus focus solely on still wines, selecting small parcels of fruit from prime vineyards in the south of England. Attention to detail is high with all fruit being hand-picked and wines being lees aged and matured in French barrel before release. This duo is the perfect introduction and your chance to take the Litmus test.
