Notes: Flint Vineyard’s Pinot Noir Précoce is a wine that they are very proud of. Having worked in Beaujolais for two years, they were very keen to develop a red wine in England & this Pinot has received critical acclaim from many wine writers including Olly Smith (Saturday Kitchen) & Jane MacQuitty (The Times).

The wine starts in the vineyard & this variety can often be elusive, requiring much care & producing very low yields that are necessary in order to gain quality.  Perfectly ripe & clean fruit is picked & fermented using a combination of Beaujolaise & Burgundian techniques.  The wine completes malolactic fermentation in barrel & is then further aged for at least 6 months.

The resulting wine is light in colour but bursting with aroma & taste. Full of cherry fruit with an underlying spice & earthiness & soft & silky on the palate. It can be paired with food but also enjoyed on its own or with cheeses. It is drinking very well now but, much like a good Beaujolais Cru or Burgundy, will age well for up to 8 years.

 

Producer Info: Husband & wife team Ben & Hannah Witchell may be relative newcomers to the winemaking business, but they’re already making waves throughout the UK.

Since its establishment in 2016, Flint Vineyard has developed a stellar reputation as one of England’s best wineries. Owners Ben & Hannah made the decision to pursue their love of wine back in 2007, quitting their jobs to travel to the world’s best winemaking regions, before eventually setting up their own vineyards on home soil when they joined forces with Norfolk farmer Adrian Hipwell to form Flint Vineyards in the sunniest, driest region in the UK.

Alongside his first class degree from Plumpton, a stint of winemaking in Beaujolais taught Ben to throw out the rulebook when it came to winemaking, in favour of the intuitive & innovative. Today, Flint is a pioneer of the Charmat method in the UK, favouring this over the traditional methods more commonly found on the English market. Alongside its artisanal Charmat Rosé, described as having ‘exceptional character’, Flint Vineyard also produces a fantastic range of still wines, & is recognised as a leading producer of English Bacchus.
