This Pinot Noir offers a hint of oaky savouriness with bright notes of raspberry sorbet, and a cherry finish. Can be drunk at room temperature or served chilled.
In 1806 Gregory Blaxland, a farmer from Canterbury, emigrated to Australia with his brother John. The journey took 220 days and en route they collected vines from the Cape of Good Hope. He planted the vines and became the first person to export wine from Australia to the UK, winning a silver medal for his red wine in London in 1822. In 2016, Gregory’s descendant Henry Blaxland was inspired by the pioneering family history to plant 6.25 hectares of vines on the edge of the Kent Downs, and so Heppington Vineyard was born.
