TINWOOD ESTATE LAUNCHES ITS FIRST MAGNUMS
250 Limited Edition Magnum Bottles Now Available
Tinwood Estate has launched the first magnum size bottle of its English sparkling wine. The magnums are available as a limited edition of 250 bottles. Tinwood currently producesover 55,000 bottles of English sparkling wine each year from its 65 acres under vine. Its three signature wines are a Brut, Blanc de Blancs and Rose.
The Tinwood Magnums are available for the Estate’s second sparkling wine, the Tinwood Blanc de Blancs. The Blanc de Blancs is a delicate pale gold wine, with a honey and brioche bouquet which becomes more noticeable with ageing. It offers a taste of citrus and white tropical fruits in abundance, with a beautifully balanced finish. Tinwood Blanc de Blancs is excellent to drink on its own, or works as a great match for light canapés and shellfish.
The decision to create the magnum size is partially due to the fact that sparkling wines benefit from being bottled in a larger size. The increased glass surface area of a magnum bottle helps promoteautolysis, the process by which the yeast cells in the wine gradually break down to produce itsbubbles.
Art Tukker, Tinwood’s Owner, comments, “We are really excited to offer these limited edition magnums to our customers. Our aim is to always ensure that our wines can be enjoyed in a contemporary and fun atmosphere and the Tinwood Magnums are the perfect way of helping to ensure this is the case – they are an impressive addition to any celebration.”
The Tinwood Magnum is 1.5 litres, the equivalent of two standard 75cl bottles. The limited editions are available from Tinwood Estate, near Chichester, for £85.
