An aromatic white wine with bubbles, produced in Gloucestershire from Ortega and Bacchus grapes. Students of the Royal Agricultural University play an active part in running Cotswold Hills social enterprise and proceeds contribute to the University’s Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Programme.
The Orpheus is a wine of great finesse, a limited range only made in selected years. A combination of whole bunch and de-stemmed fruit was pressed in an inert environment preserving the aroma and flavour pre cursors to create a concentrated well balanced expression of the Bacchus variety. This wine displays complex and well integrated flavours of elderflower and lychee with defined minerality and excellent persistent length and mouth watering finish.
English organic Pinot Noir, grown on a south facing sandy clay soil site. The 2018 vintage was one of the ripest years we have ever seen, with flavours of cherries and blackberry, a good dark colour and plenty of depth. It can be drunk now, or kept for up to 3 years to develop more complex flavours and a mellow character. Some hints of oak may emerge after a year or so. It benefits from opening a hour or two (or more) before you want to drink it.
Prominent fruit throughout thanks to the high proportion of Pinot Meunier, backed up by impressively complex layers of autolysis and a rich underbelly from the barrel component, still with the now classic English characteristics of green apple and floral notes, a hint of very floral honey on the finish
Grapes sourced solely from a small handful of chalk downland sites in the county of Hampshire, with an unusual dominance of Pinot Meunier, a red grape the winemaker Jacob believes is particularly suited to the local climate. Grapes are pressed and the juice undergoes primary fermentation in stainless steel tank then secondary fermentation in bottle as per the traditional method, where the wine ages on its lees for two years before disgorgement.
