"Churchside is without a shadow of an apse’s doubt the brightest, lightest and most buoyantly lifted of the Closson Chase pinot noir. After some vintages in which the extract pushed to the edges of crimson and violet this is such a ripe, vibrant and cherished County expression. The strawberry tart slice of life is a bite into summer open air, afternoon breezes and a daydream look out over gentle rolling limestone landscape. What County pinot noir is all about and how to tell it to the world. Drink 2017-2020." Tasted April 2017.
