English Organic Red Wine, Sedlescombe 2014 Corymbus



English Regional Wine.  Oak Matured.

Corýmbus. n.s. [Latin.] in general, signifies the top of any thing - bunches or clusters of berries of ivy, or the like.  (Samuel Johnson's English Dictionary 1755).

This Rondo, Regent and Dornfelder blend is certainly the top of our reds! -and we have made some exceptional ones over the years, including the first English red to win an International award (Sedlescombe 2011 Regent).

This 2014 vintage is a hot climate style of red delivered in our cool northerly climate. 

These exceptionally adaptable varieties were bred in Germany using Chambourcin as one the ‘parents’ of Regent and Amurensis, a variety found on the Sino-Russian border, as one of the parents of Rondo. They are both resistant to mildew disease and require only 3 sprayings instead of the usual 8,  Regent is now the most widely planted red variety in Germany. In England it requires a good south facing slope which is exactly what we have at Sedlescombe, in our Millennium Vineyard, planted with Regent in 2000.

We hand pick only the best bunches for this red and then de-stalk and crush and ferment ‘on-the-pulp’ for 10 days.  This wine then undergoes a malo-lactic ferment to convert the harsh malic acid to the softer lactic acid before infusion with oak for 5 months.

TASTING NOTE:  Deep purple, almost black with violet edge. Young nose of green pepper and roasted coffee. Fresh black fruit flavours reminiscent of Blackberry, Blackcurrant, Blueberries and some Black Olives. Medium to full-bodied, exquisitely balanced with a trace of smokey oak character and a dash of velvet tannin. A great red to go with those luxuriant weightier dishes, including medium cheeses, and even dark chocolate. Quite complex. 12% vol

Hi Roy/Irma,

What we tasted last week was fantastic ! The sparklings had tipicity with such a beautiful flavour profile. The whites were nicely fresh and the low alcohol-level was definitely a great feature. The reds had complexity, elegance and texture Thank you for showing what they can be with a bit of age to it. These varietals, grown under your biodynamic culture result in wines being so healthy and food-friendly. They even had iodine notes coming through, the reds were showing some intense minerality.
