Description & Technical Information
-
Rathfinny Estate Blanc de Noirs 2016 is the second vintage of their premium Pinot Noir/Meunier blend, produced from grapes grown and hand-harvested on Rathfinny Wine Estate.

Weather:2016 started off with fairly good weather and bud-burst occurred at the normal time. Some vineyards, especially those in West Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire, suffered from a few late spring frosts which set their vines back (especially Chardonnay) and led to low yields in those vineyards affected. Weather during the planting season was fair with little rain, but from around mid-May to the end of June, conditions were wet and temperatures below average which led to Downy Mildew starting in some vineyards.

Technical Information:
Grape Varieties: 93% Pinot Noir, 7% Meunier
Ageing: 3 years on the lees
Disgorged: January 2020
Dosage: 3 g/l
Drink: Now to 2025

Tasting Note: With a rose-gold glow, this Pinot Noir dominated sparkling delivers an expressive nose of baked Braeburn apples, a textured mousse of morello cherries, and a refined, plum-compote finish.

Anne Krebiehl MW
“A hint of nougat with fresh Red Delicious apple on the nose suggests both creaminess and liveliness. In addition, there are notes of flowers and honey. Good balance on the palate bursting with red apple fruit and with a rounded body. The long, creamy finish tastes of rye bread, sourdough and white pepper. Really elegant.”
