Culver Hill 2017
The Cotswolds; home to rolling hills, clean air, honey-coloured stone, nature’s bounty and a plethora of castles, stately homes and bustling market towns. And now it also boasts one of the most exciting wineries in the country: Woodchester Valley.
Culver Hill 2017 is a vegan-friendly blend of Seyval Blanc, Bacchus, Pinot Gris and Ortega. The first three varieties are all vinified in stainless steel to capture their wonderful aromatics, while the latter is fermented in oak barrels to add weight and texture to the wine. It’s an incredibly accomplished piece of winemaking, especially considering that Woodchester Valley have only been doing this for a decade, and it perfectly illustrates the outstanding quality of English Wine these days. A refined white with something of wildflower meadows and verdant countryside, a refreshing twist of lemon and lime, a sophisticated Loire-esque minerality, and abundant apricot and nectarine. At the Wine GB Awards in 2018 – judged by Susie Barrie (as seen on Saturday Kitchen), Oz Clarke and a panel that included six Masters of Wine – this wine was awarded a Gold Medal, and deservedly so.
Woodchester Valley is family-owned boutique wine producer with three vineyards nestled among the valleys of Stroud. The area has a rich Roman history, and one thing is for certain, wherever the Romans went there was always wine. And sure enough, winemaking in this area of the Cotswolds was documented in the Doomsday Book. Woodchester Valley’s winemaker Jeremy Mount has a wealth of experience, having worked at wineries in England, Chablis, South Africa, Germany, Napa Valley, Malta and New Zealand. So you’re in extremely safe hands with this summery white.
