Titch Hill Field Work
Region: West Sussex
Grapes: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
Titch Hill is the project of Alex Tristram and Sam Bunker in West Sussex. Less than 10km from the sea, they work to organic principles on the chalk of the South Downs, producing wines with a true sense of place. The vines are planted on a farm that has been in Alex's family for generations, with his uncle taking a keen interest in environmental restoration and the damage done across the UK by post-war industrial farming. Their first vintage is a joyful collection produced primarily from the 3.5 hectares of Chardonnay, Pinots Noir & Meunier planted in 2019, all made with no additions.
A juicy blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier that's been grown over chalky soils less than 10km from the English Coast. Precise and nimble with plenty of crunch red fruit clinging on to just a whisper of tannin.
