- Knightor Carpe Diem Red
A wide range of different styles is on show here with our selection of English red wines. A boutique selection produced at our winery in Cornwall and using grapes grown at our Cornish vineyards in Seaton and Portscatho. While red wine making in our cool climate is not easy, we hope this selection can surprise you with what can be achieved.
Discover our Knightor Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of two varietals you don't typically associate with English viticulture. Due to our cool climate, these vines were grown in greenhouses, where superb ripeness was achieved and delivers a full-bodied and well-rounded palate with good fruit intensity and tannins. A garnet coloured wine, aromas of plums, cherry, pepper and spice, there are flavours dominated by red fruit and spice and a sweetness extracted from the French oak. A robust, multi-layered wine, suitable for a range of hearty foods.
Also included is our Pinot Noir 2017, a fruity and complex red. Aromas suggest predominantly berries and smoke, but beyond this there is sweet spice, crushed juniper leaf and suggestions of something earthy. Do not be fooled by the light colour that Pinot Noir has a tendency for - there is surprising fruit weight and depth.
Last but certainly not least, there's our Knightor Carpe Diem, a lightly oaked, youthful and fresh blend with Pinot Noir, Regent, Rondo varieties. The nose is full of ripe berry characters such as cherry and strawberry, yet the Regent also provides it with crushed black pepper, spice and a little blackcurrant leaf.
