About

92

Brut Trevor Clough and Jason Humphries founded Digby as a négociant brand, setting up purchasing agreements with vineyards they believe are producing England’s top fruit. This is the first release of Leander Pink, a collaboration with the Leander Club, the world’s oldest open rowing club; a portion of the sales goes to support the Leander Academy to train talented rowers. It’s a blend of pinot noir (50 percent), chardonnay and meunier from the North and South Downs of Kent, Sussex and Hampshire, where the soils are mostly chalk and clay. It’s a pretty pink wine with some delicacy to its red-currant flavors, lasting with notes of cardamom and star anise. Pour it with duck rillettes.
