Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
75cl * 11.5% ABV * Hampshire, England
Exton Park is a 55-acre estate located in the South Down's National Park in Hampshire. The winemaker, Corinne Seely, made the first vintages of the well-regarded Coates & Seely sparkling wines and was a former winemaker at Bordeaux's Lynch-Bages and Domaine de Chevalier, whilst the vineyard manager - Fred Langdale - once tended the vines at Nyetimber. A pretty pale salmon pink, this is delicate and yet has bags of ripe berries, rose petals and Turkish delight notes on its rich, rounded and full-flavoured palate. A charming aperitif, this is also surprisingly versatile when it comes to food matching - think beef carpaccio, baked salmon or even raspberry/strawberry pavlova.
