Bellwether returns to the heart and soul of winemaking, hand pruned, handpicked, whole bunched pressed, indigenous yeast and french oak... paying respect to the ancient terroir I am fortunate to work with. Enjoy with great food!
Grown by Jan and David Jenkinson in 2010, simply stunning fruit, a warm site in a cold place- tight acid but lots of flavour and texture. will mature for 5 years(easy).
