New Hall Bacchus

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

New Hall is by far one of the best kept secrets in the English Wine Industry. Piers Greenwood is a real visionary and planted his vineyard in 1969 making it one of the oldest in the UK. The estate is in Purleigh, Essex, just 500 yards from the site of a historic vineyard dating back to 1120AD. Grapes : 100% Bacchus Region : United Kingdon / England / Essex Maker : Piers Greenwood Notes : Lime, apples and nettles on the nose. The palate is alive with Lemon and Lime acidity and an attractive, flinty minerally character Serve : Chilled, great with delicate flavour fish or seafood dishes. ABV : 10.5%

The first English Vineyard in Purleigh was planted back in 1120 and according to the local Parish records only 500 yards from where New Hall Vineyard is today. It covered about three acres of land on the southern facing slopes next to All Saints Church in Purleigh. Where George Washington's great great grandfather, the Reverend Lawrence Washington became Rector in 1633, until removed from office by the Puritans for tippling to much of the local brew. In 1163 news of the flourishing Purleigh Vineyard reached London and was then taken over by the Crown and commissioned to supply its wines back to London. Except in 1207 when its recorded that two barrels of Purleigh wine were ordered by the Crown (at a cost of 18s 6d each. less than a 1p per bottle) to be sent to Bury St Edmunds instead, in readiness for the arrival of King John. This 67 hectare English Vineyard is one of the oldest and largest English Wine Producer in the Country and was first established in Essex by the Greenwood family in the village of Purleigh in 1969. The vines grown at New Hall have been planted between 12m to 24m above sea level on well-sheltered southern facing slopes of a shallow valley. Which over the years has proven itself to be an almost ideal climatic site for the growing of vines in England and regularly produces above average crops of high quality grapes with naturally high sugars, normally in excess of 250,000 bottles each year.
