Sugrue Pierre - ‘The Trouble With Dreams’ 2013 - Case of 6
Winner of only Gold Medal at inaugural IEWA!
A blend of 60% Chardonnay & 40% Pinot Noir. 50% fermented in old 500l puncheons and old oak barriques, fruit from Storrington Priory Vineyard and Mount Harry Vineyard, Lewes. 6g/l Dosage.
The fourth vintage of Sugrue Pierre ‘The Trouble With Dreams’ comes from the 2013 harvest, again sourcing fruit from Storrington Priory Vineyard, but importantly this is the first vintage where the majority of grapes came from the exceptional Mount Harry Vineyard, near Lewes in East Sussex.
“Full, with a delicious, opulent, creamy texture. The mouthwatering, sweet apple fruit on the palate is supported by a savoury, spicy note and a refreshing acidity. A great wine with a real purity of flavour and great, pithy mouthfeel.” 96 points – Richard Hemming MW, Decanter Panel Tasting, August 2016.
“A different style emphasis, as Storrington Priory gave a shy yield this year so the blend is based on 90 per cent Mount Harry. Beguiling scents: citrus freshness with sweet crushed seeds. On the palate opens almost juicily, then grows in elegance and refinement as its structure and stony qualities become apparent. Complete and satisfying (60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, half oak fermented and no malo; half steel fermentation with malolactic).” 94 Points – Andrew Jefford, September 2016
