Toppesfield Vineyard

We planted 3,400 Bacchus and 500 Pinot Noir Fruhburgunder vines in April 2012 and an additional 1,000 Pinot Noir in May 2018. We chose Bacchus as our main white grape variety as it is a ‘cool climate’ grape which has proven to be very successful in East Anglia’s dry and sunny climate. It has hints of gooseberry and elderflower and really does evoke sensations of English hedgerows in early summer. We selected Pinot Noir Fruhburgunder, an early ripening red grape, as it makes excellent rosé wine in our climate.

In the 2018 global Sommelier competition, Toppesfield won one of four English gold medals for their Bacchus 2016 reserve.  Coworth Park Ascot’s Michael Fiducia thought Toppesfield Bacchus was defined by its elegance, describing ‘elderflower notes with light nuances of gooseberry and greengage’. Cheese at Leadenhall’s Robert Mason described it as ‘savoury on the nose, with some ripe lychee, peach and jasmine aromas, leading to a weighty body, with ripe fruit and fresh acidity’.

 

Toppesfield Rosé is a light, dry wine with hints of English strawberries and citrus. It is a gentle pink colour, with a refreshing finish and very ‘drinkable’ on a warm summers day – with or without food.

 

Our cellar door is open by appointment on Saturday mornings 10 am – 12 noon.
