Fifty Summers is made from the highest quality Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir fruit, selected from our own vines at Wiston and our partner grower in Kent. It bursts with fresh, juicy cherries and summer red currants, with delicate hints of peach blossom and white pepper.
This rosé is the realisation of a vision first dreamt fifty years before it was made. 2022 – the vintage this wine comes from – marked Harry & Pip Goring’s Golden Wedding Anniversary – and what a fitting way to celebrate this by releasing one of Pip’s favourites – a still rosé. This wine celebrates Pip’s perseverance and patience, her love of life and bringing people together.
Grapes were picked in autumn 2022—the Pinot Meunier was particularly good this harvest. Colour extraction came from skin contact in the press. The juice was then settled and fermented at around 15°C in stainless steel tanks to preserve the delicate aromas and flavours. After settling, the wine was racked off lees and bottled in February 2023. The wine is made from Pinot Meunier (88%) from our partner vineyard in Kent where the clay soils bring the desired power and depth of flavour, while the 12% Pinot Noir comes from our vineyards—the finesse from the chalk soils adding freshness and balancing out the Meunier.
