Soft, yet rich and clean, this wine shows all the classic Pinot Noir aromas of ripe strawberry, morello cherry and earthy spiciness. Elegantly balanced on the palate, the underlying characters here are purity alongside a richness and depth of fruit. Attractive wild raspberry and cranberry combine with real finesse. Tight and focussed, there are smoky notes too with hints of herbal minerality. The wine finishes with crunchy, fresh black fruits and soft, supple tannins.
Gusbourne Pinot Noir 2018
The original Gusbourne Estate in Appledore, Kent dates back to 1410.
The de Goosebourne family crest was made up of three geese and can be found in our local parish church in Appledore - nowadays, each and every bottle of wine crafted at Gusbourne carries a contemporary goose crest in honour of our heritage.
This ‘Goosemark’ is a symbol of trust, representing our pursuit of uncompromising quality.
In 2004, Andrew Weeber took over the estate with a clear vision and a single goal: to create English sparkling wines that would stand up alongside the very finest offerings from across the globe.
The first vines were planted that year. Gusbourne quickly earned a reputation as a producer of outstanding quality wines, with accolades from some of the industry’s most exacting critics.
A combination of the best age-old traditions with modern technology and cutting-edge equipment allows us to sit comfortably between old and new world winemaking, while at the same time bringing our own exacting quality standards to the process.
Respect for the vineyards, the fruit and the natural elements involved in winemaking means that our approach favours minimal intervention.
