The very first vintage from the domain vines at Tillingham, East Sussex! After establishing themselves as England's most idiosyncratic and in-demand producer by making experimental wines using fruit from neighboring vineyards, these long-awaited bottlings are made exclusively using fruit from the young, freshly-planted and biodynamically farmed vines of the estate. Extremely limited quantities.

From the Phipps and Copse Bank sites. The wine can be seen as either a very light red or a darker rosé. Luminescent ruby in colour with notes of pink peppercorn and grapefruit on the nose. Light and linear with a thrilling acidity on the palate. Altogether juicy and joyous.

All the varieties were picked on the same day, hand sorted, destemmed and crushed. They were then co-fermented with 20% whole clusters (all varieties) for five days and pressed into a 500l Stockinger puncheon barrel. Then aged for eight months before being racked to stainless steel and bottled by gravity with a small sulfur addition.
