Blanc de Noirs, Ancre Hill Estates NV
Ancre Hill Estates, owned by Richard and Joy Morris, comprises two vineyard sites on the edge of Monmouth, South East Wales with some 30,000 vines planted on approximately 12 hectares (29.5 acres) and a state-of-the-art, modern winery. The business has evolved from the first plantings in 2006 and 2007 at Ancre Hill, which now extends to about 4 hectares of mature vines. Newton Court Farm was purchased in 2014, the same year as the new winery was built at Ancre Hill, where a further 8 ha of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay has been planted.
All the land was former grazing pasture – never used for agriculture and the soils are healthy and well nourished. Ancre Hill apply a holistic approach to everything in vineyard and winery and practise conscientious biodynamics.
A soft inviting nose of lightly toasted brioche with hints of beeswax, the palate adds a hint of citrus peel and the finish is clean and fresh.
