Tasting Notes

Oh boy are we excited to introduce you to the wines of Danbury Ridge! Their Pinot Noir 2018 has a gorgeous nose loaded with hedgerow fruits, moss, and redcurrants, with a tease of smoke, polished coffee bean and plums. So succulent! The palate is similar, with a little orange oil and Campari spice. It holds its 30% new oak extremely well, with just a hint of wood spice that really adds complexity. Mouth-watering tannins, very fine acidity and silken finish - so  lithe and elegant! With more time in the glass, there’s a very pretty cherry blossom and more of strawberry note appearing. A wonderful wine to drink now and revisit in a few years to see its development. Max 6 BOTTLES per customer

More Info

Located in the warmest, dried area of the UK, the first vineyards were planted at Danbury Ridge in 2014, and 2018 is their debut vintage. And as Jancis Robinson said, "what a debut!" The focus here has, and always will be still wines, and with the climate they have, and the ripeness levels the grapes are reaching, one can certainly see why. When Swig was founded, who knew one day we would be talking about the brilliance of Essex terroir! We firmly believe that Danbury Ridge have raised the bar exponentially for English still wine, and we're so excited to join them at the beginning of their journey.
