Tillingham Col 19
Region: East Sussex
Grapes: Pinot Noir, Auxerrois, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier
Tillingham is the brainchild of winemaker Ben Walgate who crafts natural wines from his 70 acre farm near Rye in East Sussex.
Col 19 is Ben's 9% Col Fondo (with lees) sparkling wine made from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Auxerrois and Pinot Meunier with the latter two both aged in clay qvevri. A hazy, pale green gold in appearance with preserved lemon and green apple aromas leading onto a zippy, lightly creamy palate.
