Hampshire-based Hattingley Valley winery has unveiled Still, its first range of still wines

The new line-up comprises a rosé from the 2019 vintage and a 2016 Pinot Noir red.

The rosé is a 100% Pinot Noir Précoce wine, made from fruit sourced from vineyards in Kent and Berkshire. It’s due for release in early April.

The wine was vinified according to the saignée method, which gave the liquid its delicate pink colour; it was then fermented for five months in stainless steel tanks.

Meanwhile, the red Pinot Noir was fermented on its skins for two weeks and was then transferred to French oak barrels where it rested for three years. Hattingley says that the wine is due to be released later this year.

The wines are available to the on trade through the winery and merchant Enotria & Coe.
