Sopham Estate Pinot Gris
Pinot Gris is the grape more commonly associated with Pinot Grigio from Italy. This Pinot Gris is off-dry and pale lemon in colour, with aromatic peach and pear fruit alongside the floral character on the nose. On the palate, it has excellent balance with crisp acidity. It is full in bodied, with plenty of juicy fruit intensity, but is refreshing and long, with a lively citrus and stone-fruit 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.
