Stopham Estate Pinot Gris 2018




Stopham Estate is the brainchild of Simon Woodhead, who began his career as an engineer designing parts for Formula 1 cars. Simon established Stopham Estate in 2007, when he planted six hectares of predominantly Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc near Pulborough in West Sussex. Simon practises sustainable farming and is aided by the south-facing vineyards, which maximise sun exposure and ripening.

His Pinot Gris is off-dry and pale lemon in colour, with aromatic peach and pear fruit alongside the floral character on the nose. On the palate, it has excellent balance with crisp acidity. It is full in bodied, with plenty of juicy fruit intensity, but is refreshing and long, with a lively citrus and stone-fruit finish.

Breaking news – this delightful wine has just been awarded a silver medal at the 2021 WineGB Awards !!
