X, Blanc de Noirs 2017
This is only the second Blanc de Noirs ever made at Greyfriars Vineyard specially created to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of us taking over Greyfriars.
Our Pinot Noir grapes seem to be at the heart of our most exciting wines and this special release has been crafted using 100% Pinot Noir from the under-rated 2017 vintage.
The wine is aromatic and elegant with an expression reminiscient of freshly baked apple pie, quince jelly, some hints of confit ginger and refreshing grapefruit notes.
Since we kept the fruit doing the talking with very little sugar added to the wine, its dry fruity and clean and we recommend it as an aperitif to celebrate with us the 10 years of Greyfriars Vineyard !
