Breaky Bottom Cuvee Gerard Hoffnung 2009

£60.00 GBP

Winemaker Peter Hall looks after 6 hectares in the South Downs national park, he also tends after 40 Lambs that graze the hills and vineyards. The wines are named after friends and family of Peter, he only makes small quantities of each cuvee.

Praised for its “fresh bready nose, mouth-watering palate and long rich crafted finish” this cuvée received a gold medal at the International Wine Challenge.

For Peter Gerard was a great family friend, an artist, cartoonist, musician, humourist and broadcaster; a constant visitor to his London home during his childhood.

This is a classic blend, with elegance and finesse after seven years on the lees.
