2017 Old Vine Pinot Meunier
This is one of the wines, the Thomson family and whole team really get excited about. Not only because of its limited production and rarity but because we all simply love to drink it. Young or old, it amazes us for its balance, length, flavours, longevity and it's simple drinkability.
The 2017 is a return to the style made in the 70's through to the 90's. Slightly lighter but with more aromatics, greater length and one of the best our winemaker has said he's made. The dried rose petal and culinary spices form part of a deep scented aroma. Glacé cherries with savoury spicy notes, bond in a harmonious marriage with the lingering velvet structure. Try it with dried morel mushrooms rehydrated in melted Irish butter, tossed with a dash of cream and homemade pappardelle pasta.
