A ‘field blend’ is a way of creating wine that truly reflects the composition of the vineyard and steers away from the modern practice of keeping everything separate. An organically produced blend of pinot noir, pinot gris and gewurztraminer, this wine is like a red, a rose and an orange wine all rolled into one. Super-light, it’s designed to be consumed chilled and cloudy because it hasn’t been fined or filtered, keeping on the natural front, there are also no sulphites or preservatives used in its production either.  Skin fermented for 7 weeks and then barrel aged before release, the mouthfeel is grippy and generous.  Earthy, truffle like, hints of baked fruits and spice, it’s a crazy spectrum of flavours created by Theo Coles, and it’s as natural as it gets.
Sip with: salami, asparagus and fennel risotto.
