Tillingham is the brainchild of winemaker Ben Walgate who crafts natural wines from his 70 acre farm near Rye in East Sussex.
Something very experimental from TIllingham! 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. Pink and sprightly, with wild fruits, married with soft bubbles and a cream sherbet texture, refreshing and structured in equal measure.
