Simpsons Derringstone Pinot Meunier

England 2020

Another one of those white wines made from red grapes. This is one of the finest still wines we've tasted from England, made from one of the classic Champagne varieties. The aroma resembles still high- end champagne some bread and honeyed notes. With a much more viscous mouthfeel than you might expect from an English wine. Just get yourself a bottle and you'll understand just how far England has come in producing great wines.

Benevolent Neglect Counoise

USA 2018

Two blocks of Counoise, one planted in the 1920s, the other in the 1970s, make up this wine.
