Best’s Old Vine Pinot Meunier 2017

Oh for a time machine to ask Henry Best what he liked about pinot meunier to plant it in 1868 in his vineyard in Great Western. Wonderful that it’s survived to make this wine today.

It’s not a wine to stretch the imagination but it has immediate charm. Glossy texture, light weight yet flavoursome, highly perfumed and set to white strawberry, vanilla, briary notes and faint white pepper, there’s drinkability in spades despite it feeling like a relatively simple wine. It’s long in flavour, smooth and balanced well (texture is glorious), with a refreshing, gently bitter twist in its extended flavours. Enthusiasts and collectors will be well served.
