Kingscote Estate is located in the Kingscote Valley, near East Grinstead. The vineyards have been planted within the origins of the English country garden created by author William Robinson who previously owned the land.
Fifteen-acres of vines have been initially planted, including Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Bacchus, Pinot Blanc and Regent grapes. The initial vines were planted in 2010, 2011 and 2013. The vineyards have been planted on south facing slopes in the land of the original English country garden established by William Robinson and set within the picturesque backdrop of the Kingscote Valley. The soil is a rich mix and contains sand, clay and ironstone.
A two-acre apple orchard was planted in 2011 with 14 different varieties of classic English apples including Bramley, Jonagold, Cox and Spartan. Kingscote Sparkling Cyder is made using the champagne method with the apples from our orchard.
A unique and delicious lightly oaked English Bacchus. Light green gold in colour. The nose is clean, rose petal, subtly spicy. The palate is dry and rich. Peach, ripe gooseberry and lime in a delightfully complex riot of flavours. A long citrus and spicy finish.
Rich nose yet with tension and minerals, savoury hints and aromas of peach pannacotta with herbal notes. The palate is rich with a creamy mouth feel, white stone fruit combines with minerals and fresh herbs. Dry finish with mineral acidity and powerful, persistent length.
