Saw Pit 2020 - Tillingham
One of the very first vintages including fruit that is all grown on Tillingham's very own estate in East Sussex. A blend of Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir from the one plot.
This red wine is super limited in quantities and comes as just a 50cl bottle, but it really is one to not miss out on. It's light and generous in equal measure and bringing pomegranate, chocolate and coffee to play, with a silkiness on the palate.
Tillingham is based near Rye on 70 acres of rolling East Sussex hills. Progressive and but rooted in ancient traditions champions a biodynamic way of farming that is grounded in sustainability.
The project, founded by farmer and winemaker Ben Walgate and begun in 2017, makes use of the diverse crop the farm is home to; vineyards, fruit trees, woodland and livestock. This range is a constant source of creativity for Tillingham, best showcased in the farm's 'Field Blends'. Elsewhere the wines produced on the farm are more familiar but all with a quality that Walgate can only describe as "Tillingham-y".
While much of their uniqueness is in the produce, Tillingham's dedication to craftsmanship and instinctive experimental processes, using for example spontaneous fermentation or barefoot treading, entertains risk for results that are being incredibly well-received. It's these practices that transform traditional grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir into Tillingham wines.
