'Really perfumed! Night jasmine over sweet cherry. Lots of paper-fine, dry tannins stitched through lean but ripe, refined fruit. Wild red berries. A little bit of herbaceousness, some white pepper and allspice. A very slight rim of bitterness. Delicate Pinot, but all in balance. A wine that proves there is a future for Pinot in the UK – and once again, grapes from Crouch Valley showing exciting promise. I’d hold it back for one more year before drinking.' – Tamlyn Currin, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20

'The third generation of our core red wine, Essex born and Battersea bred, Nightjar. Hailing from Clayhill Vineyard: situated on the coastal peninsula of Crouch Valley and positioned between the rivers Crouch & Blackwater, the vineyard is a beautiful south facing site with clay soils and was planted in 2006. The grapes are hand-picked then travel the short distance to our winery in Battersea. Fermented naturally in small open top fermenters with 30% whole cluster. It has been aged in burgundy barrels for 9 months. Unfined and unfiltered.' – Winemaker
