The Sussex based family-run vineyard producing award-winning still and sparkling English wines, is proud to announce the launch of its new Winemaker’s Edition range.

The exclusive addition to the core portfolio has been crafted to ensure that the Estate can continue to highlight its pioneering approach to English wine by bringing new, exciting releases to its customers using new blends that show off the very best of English winemaking. The Winemaker’s Edition will only be released when the opportunity is different and special, making each bottle even more exclusive.

The first incarnation of the Winemaker’s Edition is a well-balanced, medium-bodied red wine (82% Rondo, 18% Pinot Noir) with smoky aromas, black pepper, and dark cherry. The palate shows earthy notes complemented by blackberry and dark chocolate, offering a good tannic structure making it an ideal wine for ageing. It perfectly complements steak frites, meaty pasta dishes and BBQ dishes.

Sam Linter, MD and head winemaker at Bolney Wine Estate, commented: “All of our wines at Bolney are special, but in launching the Winemaker’s Edition we are reinforcing our commitment to produce outstanding English wines using new blends, techniques and all of our experience from almost 50 years of winemaking. We will be striving to create wines that are unusual, but that still complement our core portfolio, and the red wine that we’re launching with is the perfect inaugural choice. It’s been a pleasure to create this wine with the Estate team, and we can’t wait for our customers to experience the first Winemaker’s Edition.”

Bolney’s Winemaker’s Edition 2019 is now available exclusively for nationwide delivery from the Bolney website and vineyard shop priced £18.99 per bottle.
