Flint Silex Blanc 2021
- Wine - Flint Vineyard Silex Blanc
- Country - England
- Region - Norfolk
- Vintage - 2021
- Grape Varieties - 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Blanc
- ABV - 11.5%
- Tasting Note - Bright and zesty on the nose but with softer apricot and honeysuckle notes. The palate is taught and dry yet smooth, with excellent acidity and texture. There is a long finish tasting of hazelnut, raising and shortbread, with an almost ‘Marc de Bourgogne’ character. Partial malolactic fermentation lends softness and considered use of skin contact adds texture making it a great pairing with food.
- The Silex 2021 is tasting great now but can be cellared for up to five years when it will improve in bottle.
