Rose 2021 - Tillingham
A perfectly hazy rosé wine with a hint of orange for good measure from East Sussex wine producer Tillingham.
Carbonic and non-carbonic fermentation, then pressed after five days of maceration. Aged in concrete for six months, racked and bottled by gravity with a small sulphur addition. Juicy with notes of Fig and dried Orange peel. Conventional method but low input viticulture.
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.
