Region: East Sussex
Grapes: Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc
Tillingham is the brainchild of winemaker Ben Walgate who crafts natural wines from his 70 acre farm near Rye in East Sussex.
The Tillingham 2021 rosé pet-nat is a blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc. The grapes were whole bunch pressed after a 24-hour maceration in the press and fermented in stainless steel, then bottled by gravity to finish fermentation in bottle. Candy pink in appearance with a healthy amount of sediment. Expect stewed rhubarb with hints of rose petal on the nose leading into a sherbet tang full of raspberries.
