Sopham Estate Pinot Blanc
This Pinot Blanc is a lovely pale lemon colour in the glass with fresh perfumes of pear. On the palate, pink grapefruit, melon and sweet fennel combine with a zippy acidity. Well balanced, this wine has a succulent sweetness which lasts well into the lengthy finish. 75cl
When Simon Woodhead left his Formula 1 engineering career at McLaren to do a Spanish language course in Madrid, he didn't know he would end up planting a Sussex vineyard.
He subsequently enrolled on a Wine Production and Business course at Plumpton Agricultural College near Lewes, Sussex.
Once at Plumpton, surrounded by English wine enthusiasts, Simon's passion for nature and agriculture inspired him to plant his own vineyard and make English wine.
