About the Wine
Produced exclusively for Matthew Clark by Sixteen Ridges. Winemaker Simon Day said, “We’ve been on an exciting and fast-paced winemaking adventure this harvest, partnering with Matthew Clark to produce this belter of a red wine. It has taken just seven weeks to make, using our lovely ripe Pinot, grown on our sheltered Herefordshire hillside vineyards. ‘By Golly’ is a beautifully soft and fruity, Early Release Pinot Noir that we are all really proud of.” Formed from primarily Pinot Noir grapes, this wine is vegetarian and vegan friendly.
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
Sixteen Ridges vineyard was planted in 2007 on an ancient ridge and furrow field. South facing and a natural amphitheatre shape, it enjoys a perfect aspect with excellent shelter. Lift the lid off of the winery, in the historic town of Ledbury, and discover how they strive to challenge convention; an approach which is at the core of entrepreneurial owner Angus, and award-winning winemaker Simon.
Our national vineyards are growing and thriving and this is an exciting time for the burgeoning industry with 2018 being a record year and forecasts set to grow to production of 40 million bottles by 2040.Explore England
