Red Pinot Noir 2018
92 points, “This is one of the best Pinot Noirs I’ve tried from the UK… Very stylish and quite elegant.” – Dr Jamie Goode, WineAnorak.com
Litmus Red Pinot Noir has been hailed by The Independent as one of the “best English red wines”, and that was before they released this. 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.
100% Pinot Noir, grown in Kent and aged for 19 months in old oak barrels, the only bad news is that it’s made in tiny quantities. The good news is that we’ve got some and it’s brimming with ripe red cherry, strawberry, raspberry, woody mulling spices and something akin to an autumn walk in a forest of oak and pine trees. Weather permitting, it’s a perfect partner for a barbeque. But it works equally well with duck, pizza, tomato-based pasta or herb-roasted vegetables and would be a fine choice for turkey and all the trimmings at Christmas.
