Tillingham Athingmill 2020
Pink and sprightly, with wild fruits, married with soft bubbles and a cream sherbet texture, refreshing and structured in equal measure. ATHINGMILL is a bit of everything, a snapshot of the vintage, combining all wines and ciders from that year.
After decanting a red wine from Qvevri, a small amount of the red and its lees were left in the Qvevri, Pinot blanc juice and apple juice were added first, followed by a selection of wines from tank, barrel and concrete. Wines made with skin contact and without. The wine fermented in Qvevri before being racked by gravity to tank and bottled with a small amount of residual sugar, refermented in bottle and not disgorged.
