Stopham Pinot Gris


Stopham Vineyard Pinot Gris 2022

The Stopham team are true pioneers of this grape variety in the UK, and it really shows. The brand new 2022 release is a beautifully precise Pinot Gris, yet Stopham’s winemaking passion shines through with its combination of ripe, succulent peach and pear fruit, and its zesty, limey, goosberry-fruit finish. It is incredibly ripe and intense – so much so that you almost wouldn’t believe that it is an English white wine.

Yet English it is – and if you want to understand why so many are talking up Pinot Gris as a potential signature grape for English still white wine – this would be a great place to start.

Pair with crispy air-fried chicken wings, served with a honey-sriracha dipping sauce.
