UK's Top Most Expensive English Red Wine



Priced at £69.95 a bottle this is probably the most expensive English wine ever! Why so expensive? How can a price like this be justified? Quite simply, because this wine made history - it rocked the wine world. 

Previously no-one thought that England could produce a decent red wine. So when this wine became the first English red to win an international award, beating 53 other wines from the more established wine regions of the world in the process, it bacame quite a talking point. So much so that it was featured in The Times on 16th June 2013 and the next day on BBC TV South East today.

Another history making point is that this Sedlescombe 2011 Regent red is the first biodynamic English red. So this remarkable wine is worth every penny as it represents a groundbreaking moment in the history of English Wine and could be stored and then auctioned at a substantial profit in years to come - if you can resist drinking it, that is!

How does it taste? Here's our description written shortly after bottling in 2013. A colleague of mine who collects fine wines, tasted the wine again in November 2014 and described the wine as "gaining in complexity and still developing". Here are my 2013 tasting notes:

"A ripe, smooth and full-bodied red from this superb vintage. Non-chapitalized and matured in barrique oak barrels. Smokey, fruity aromatics. Robust blackcurrant, raspberry and cherry fruit palate with ample tannin. Quite complex."

Regent produces excellent fruit for red wine enabling us to produce a hot climate style of red in our cool northerly climate. We hand pick only the best bunches for this red and then de-stalk and crush and ferment 'on-the-pulp' for 10 days. 12% vol. 75cl bottle.

We made just 92 cases of this wine, by May 2016 only a dozen cases remain. This wine makes an ideal gift for someone special: a partner, parent or wine lover.

Hi Roy/Irma,
Just to let you know we have tried a white , red and rose wine over the weekend. The wine is the best we have ever tasted and we'll definitely be buying some more . Superfast delivery with excellent packaging and customer service.

Recent testimonial:
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.
