And now for something different. Wines in the Vineyards range demonstrate Simon's innovative treatment of specific parcels of fruit and his willingness to challenge the 'everyday' winemaking process. Simon loves to experiment while capturing the raw, ethereal and sometimes undiscovered qualities of individual grape varieties.
"The Astrolabe Wrekin Vineyard Chenin Blanc is made from grapes grown on a loess clay slope. We hand pick the grapes
to give a delicacy to the pheniolics. The chenin blanc is partially barrel fermented with wild yeast for complexity and
with the remainder in stainless steel to preserve the fruit
flavours. All fruit is free-run to retain purity. I love the
Chenin grape because of its distinct flavour profile, the
ability of the wine to age with interest and grace and the
