Wines from Yearlstone Vineyard - 2014 Vintage Now Available

Yearlstone Wines A small well-made range of white, rosé and red wines - along with a fine sparkling Brut. So says David Moore, the Louis Roederer and Glenfiddich wine writer of the year in his new book A Guide to The Wines of England & Wales (cowritten by Philip Williamson and Neville Blech, available from Amazon). As readers of David's well-known series Behind the Label know, these give in depth tasting notes on the top wines of most wine regions. We'll show you what David thought of some of our top wines below.

We are proud that wines made here at Yearlstone have won over 50 awards in the last 5 years' English & Welsh Wine of the Year Competitions.

Nearly all the new 2014 wines are now available. Only the 2013 vintage of No 3 is still on sale, and stocks are running rather low.

Our 2013 vintage sparkling fizzes, Vintage Brut 2013, and pink fizz, Vintage Brut Rosé 2013, are also now available (May 2015). These are a blend of Pinot Blanc and Seyval Blanc. Our VB's have won a host of awards, from a Recommendation in Decanter (spring 2013) to medallist at the prestigious Lyons International Wine Competition (spring 2013) and a ranking of joint 4th best in England in the leading French wine magazine La Revue du Vin (Xmas 2012). The 2013 vintage was released in May 2015 after over two years ageing in the cellars, the 2010 may still be stocked by the UK's leading independent wine retailer CWM.

Half cases and cases of the pink fizz are now available on our Online sales web page.

English wine is light and fresh with wonderful aromas - making it perfect as an aperitif or to accompany light seasonal English food - as served in our vineyard café - the Yearlstone Café.

Yearlstone Number 6 2014 - Barrel Aged Dry White - £9.95 per bottle

Yearlstone Number 6 Wine   Yearlstone Number 6 Label Every year our policy is to buy a new barrel of French oak. Careful blending of 225 litres from this barrel produces a soft and rounded white wine from our Pinot Blanc grapes. The winemaker also introduces a malolactic fermentation in the wine to add to to the softness and bring vanilla undertones. Less obviously aromatic than the the other three whites.

Our premium dry wine made from our ripest Pinot Gris of a decade.
Potential to age for several years.
