Displaying an array of ripe red fruit aromas with highlights of cherries, hints of smokiness and spice add complexity to the nose. The palate has a juicy acidity and fine tannins lending to a refreshingly long finish.
Super-premium estate sited in the warmest, driest corner of England, near the coast and Malden (of posh salt fame). This south-facing ridge enjoys an exceptionally long warm growing season - so rare in England. Our old friend John Atkinson, Master of Wine, who is an expert on cool-climate viticulture, is enthusiastically involved. Winemaker is Liam Idzikowski who boasts long experience in English wine-making; backed by owners the Bunker family, the winery is an astonishing no-expense-spared jewel in the crown for English wine.
The Pinot is deep and svelte in the Pommard/Volnay tradition, rich of fruit and cool of spice - clove, anise etc. Young but self-evidently grand, and deeply impressive.
Full of black cherry and bramble fruit with a hint of red cherry and almond, the Barons Lane Red displays juicy dark fruits, tomato leaf and a smoky peppery character leading to a firm, well-structured finish.
Made from the best fruit available in the UK and aged in 30% new oak, this unique English Red wine displays a complex and intense array of black cherries, raspberries and bramble fruit, underpinned by subtle toasty oak.
