Get to know: Flint Vineyard, Fume

Tasting Note

A fabulous, refined and sophisticated expression of Bacchus here from Flint. There are fresh and clean aromas of ripe fleshy pear, apple and almond on the nose with a soft, creamy mid-palate that is nutty and smoky on the finish. This is a very elegant and subtly complex wine that is really well put together. One of the most impressive English still wines we've tried so far for the price. Flint use oak barrels for their Fumé to encourage aromatic development and softness rather than oak flavour. In their opinion, using barrel fermentation can push Bacchus towards the style of its parent variety, Riesling, and hyper-oxidation of some juice fractions softens the wine and use of nitrogen at the press preserves aromatics.

Try this with seared scallops and fennel

Kate Says

"We've all absolutely fallen for this wine since we tried it together. This latest vintage builds on the quality of the stunning 2022. It carries it all through with a graceful subtlety and sublimely elegant texture. If you like Pouilly Fumé or Chablis, give this a try."

Producer Info

Flint Vineyard has been making wine since 2016 and in that short time has become recognised as one of England’s most exciting new wine producers.

Winemaker Ben Witchell’s philosophy is based on his experience, which combines studying the science of wine and appreciating the traditional elements of the process.

The focus is on ultra-premium, low volume still wines, using the best fruit from their own and partner vineyards. Since then Flint Vineyard has flourished. There are now over 26,000 vines covering 6 hectares and a state-of-the-art winery allows wine production at the highest level. 

The fruit was harvested by hand from their own vines and a parcel from Martin's Lane Vineyard in the Crouch Valley, Essex. Extended skin contact at the press (late press fractions held over night under nitrogen). Fermented and aged (6 months) 100 % in neutral oak barrels (3rd and 4th fill). Partial indigenous fermentation / partial use of complex non-Saccharomyces strains. No malolactic fermentation.

No fining agents have been used so the wine is vegan friendly gluten free.

Residual sugar: <0.5 g/L,

Titratable acidity: 7.3 g/L.
