Pinot Noir

75cl * 12.0% ABV * Sussex, England

This 45-acre boutique vineyard is driven by the bold and ambitious vision of husband and wife co-owners Julie Bretland and Mark Collins. With the backdrop of the beautiful South Downs, Artelium (a combination of ‘art’ and ‘ium’, representing a place for the study of nature) is a celebration of Julie and Mark's passion for wine and art. You can see this reflected in the striking modern labels of their wines and in the regular art exhibitions they host.

They work with artisan winemakers and take pride in the close relationship between the growers and makers, which have so far produced some outstanding award-winning wines. As well as being awarded the WineGB Sustainable Wine Certification in 2020, Artelium clinched the Newcomer of the Year award at the 2022 WineGB Awards, where their Blanc de Blancs 2015 won not only best Blanc de Blancs, but also Top Sparkling Wine of the whole competition.

This concentrated and multi-layered English Pinot Noir was crafted from grapes grown on a single Sussex vineyard. Produced by renowned winemaker Owen Elias, this is a complex, moreish Pinot Noir with an enticing bright ruby colour. Naturally fresh cold-climate acidity gives fine structure. Deep ruby colour and depth of flavour on a ‘crushable’ frame – tiny natural spritz on first opening adds charm. Red and black cherry, baked plum and damson fruit forms a concentrated core. Layers of rolling tobacco, star anise and ginger spice. Great concentration on palate. Well-integrated, quality oak adds complexity throughout.

A great wine on its own at room temperature or served slightly chilled. Ideal with seasonal Game, lighter red meat dishes and lamb. A perfect partner to earthy mushrooms or protein-rich bean dishes.
