Move over French Beaujolais Nouveau! We now have British Nouveau – and Balfour Nouveau in particular, born in Kent, the Garden of England, and released a day ahead of our friends across the Channel. …..
Balfour Nouveau 2020 is made from one particular parcel of Burgundy clone Pinot Noir, which was harvested on 23rd September – less than two months from release. Head Winemaker Fergus Elias stated: “the fruit from this parcel was so early, with a lovely strawberry jam character, that we thought we would never have a better opportunity to make a Nouveau style red wine. This fruit was the forerunner of a harvest of exceptional quality”
