Tillingham, Qvevri White
Pale green-gold in colour. Aromatic on the nose with notes of greengage and kaffir lime leaf which reflect on the palate. Linear acidity combines with a dry grip, whilst characters of melon and lemongrass endure.
Grapes: Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay & Auxerrois
Place: Peasmarsh, East Sussex, UK
Tillingham is set amongst 70 acres of rolling hills and woodlands with far reaching views along the Tillingham River valley and across to the fortified, hill top town of Rye, East Sussex, to the sea and the Romney salt marshes beyond.
The philosophy at Tillingham would be best summarised as progressive: incorporating what we know of the best scientific and technological knowledge available to them, whilst championing ancient traditions and best practice learnt from millennia of farming and winemaking.
