Notes

John Seccombe of Thorne & Daughters seems to have a particularly refined aesthetic when it comes to winemaking and its thrilling to watch it gain greater elucidation with each passing vintage.

John's methods are uncomplicated, his standards stringent and his volumes small (but growing). Thoughtful, fastidious and nuanced are the three words that come to mind when talking about John the winemaker. He prizes flavour, balance, precision and texture in his wines and the 2016s do not disappoint.

The Copper Pot Pinot Noir was originally created for his in-law’s hotel in the Midlands (Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse - well worth a visit) and was offered out in tiny quantities last year. It did not last long. John has thankfully made more this year, in the same up-front, immediately-appealing-with-great-tension style, but we are limiting it to 60 bottles per customer to 'share the love'.
