“Its the wine i always wanted to make”– Founder, William Boscawen
“White from Black best expresses itself when the approach is to pick ripe, be gentle and let the fruit do the talking” – Head Winemaker, Scott Gebbie
Mereworth White from Black is made exclusively from Estate grown Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and crafted from a single vintage. This wine encapsulates the hedgerow fruits and plum orchards that surround the vineyard. This wine is released at the perfect timing when the balance between fruit derived freshness and deep complexity evolved during bottle aging is achieved.
Pinot Noir matures excellently on the sunny slopes of the Greensand Ridge where a carefully selected blend of predominantly Burgundian clones produce low yielding, concentrated fruit that give power and structure to our wines whilst encapsulating the essence and aromas of the Kentish strawberry fields, plum orchards and hedgerow fruits that surround us.
Showcasing the perfect balance of our Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. Concentrated red fruit flavours harmonise with delicate aromas of hedgerow fruits and orchard plums, with layers of complexity to discover in a long finish
