Drinking Window: 2022 - 2025
Made by Cambridge's first urban winery located under a windmill. The grapes used for this wine were sourced from the Missing Gate Vineyard in Crouch Valley of Essex. Grassy green peas and jasmine perfume jump right out from the glass, with lime and flinty nectarine to follow. Aged in old oak, it's saline and crisp on the palate, with razor-sharp green apple acidity and lime zest, leading to minty umami notes on the finish. A clean and refreshing expression of the variety. Only 800 bottles were made.
