Most years, if we have enough juice we like to produce a small amount of still wine for ourselves and friends. It is lightly pressed and released in the spring following the harvest. It is sold in small quantities in our local shops. In general we thought that it would be a wine to be drunk when young but three years on, the 2010 still tastes great although sadly we are down to the few last bottles.
A long growing season brought perfect ripeness, our tiny plot of Bacchus in particular was beautiful adding spicy tropical aromas to this wine. This wine is fuller and richer than many of our previous releases but still maintains the mineral aromas typical of Higher Plot. It won a silver medal in the United Kingdom Wine Awards.
