Details

FLOR Tillingham Estate 2018, Natural wine from England, Pinot Blanc aged under Flor Yeast, close your eyes and you could be in the Jura. Nutty and saline, with notes of sherry-like oxidation. In the mouth the wine has bright acidity, which is balanced by a richly textured finish, with a sweet twist from the barrel influence. A delicious and creative wine from ever expanding and ambitious wine maker Ben Walgate.


Tillingham is a fantastic project run by Ben Walgate in East Sussex. It is situated off a winding country lane on a slope leading down to the Tillingham River which meanders down to Rye. Ben has already set about using organic compost across his five acres, and he plans to introduce sheep onto the land in the spring to help naturally control cover crop and weeds. He's even experimenting with biodynamic preparations (such as 500) so as to improve the health of his soil. Now here's a man who's serious about natural wine making!  In all Ben has planted around 10,000 plants including thirteen English and International grape varieties. His style is experimental, preferring natural methods and a 'try-it-and-see' approach, which is yielding some great results from this budding winemaker.  Great to see such passion and instinct from English wineries.
