2019 The Drift Estate ‘There Are Still Mysteries’

£53.20 / Per Bottle

On the nose the wine is mesmerizingly complex - with notes of plum, cardamom, thyme, rhubarb, red cherry & cinnamon. Every time one takes a sniff a new nuance reveals itself. The palate is elegant and soft, but alive and fresh with lingering creamy tannin. Flavours of strawberry, chocolate, dried garden herbs, ripe nectarine, warm spices & a touch of vanilla.

Winemaker’s notes

  • Vinification and Winemaking

Picked at optimal phenological ripeness and processes cool at The Drift Estate; destemmed under CO2 to open top stainless steel fermenters; Cold soak at <12°C for 5 days with daily pump overs under CO2; warm up; natural fermentation without added yeast lasted 3 days with 3-4 x daily gentle punch downs; post fermentation maceration followed, pressed using a traditional basket press; Light rack to barrel after 24 hours settling. 15 months in oak. 3 rackings prior to course sheet filtration before bottling on 5 June 2020.


Go Sophisticated – a Pinot with so many layers of flavour you find something different in every sip. Loves nuanced, layered flavours and mildly spiced food. Everything from oven-roasted game birds, like pheasant, to beef carpaccio, vitello tonnato and creamy prawn curry with cashews.

Can be enjoyed now or will benefit from further cellaring for 10-15 years.
