Now in it's 5th year after vintage, the first Jenkyn Place Blanc de Noir is ready for release. It has a fresh nose of cashew nuts with notes of lime and ginger and on the palate there is a sensation of ripe pear, golden apple, baked bread and toast. Its great acid structure gives freshness, lift and length. There is plenty of complexity to follow as the wine already has stunning length, poise and detail on the finish – fascinating and delicious! This wine has a fantastic future.
A blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Pinot Meunier, the Jenkyn Place Blanc de Noirs is produced by winemaker Dermot Sugrue, and will only be made in exceptional years.
Situated on the south facing slope of the North Downs in Hampshire, Jenkyn Place is run by Simon Bladon and his daughter Camilla. The winery produces only sparkling wines from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes grown on soils of greensand over chalk and marlstone. The first vines were planted in 2004; today the vineyard has grown to 12 acres.
