Fifty One Degrees North is an expression of place. This singular vintage wine comes from the high-quality fruit grown in Gusbourne’s Kent and Sussex vineyards at 51 degrees latitude.
With meticulous vineyard work, their wines – predominantly Burgundian clones – thrive in this marginal climate. They tread lightly, letting the character of the soil, wind and weather, shine through.
Their grape yields are small, perfectly ripe and intensely flavoured. Only the finest berries are selected for Fifty One Degrees North
At harvest, the grapes were impeccably ripe. Alongside their characteristic citrus flavours were rich notes of stone and orchard fruits with harmoniously balanced acidity and sugar.
“The 2014 vintage was a watershed moment,” says Chief Winemaker Charlie Holland. “It convinced me that our combination of climate and soil meant Gusbourne could consistently produce incredible, ripe, complex fruit.”
Fifty One Degrees North is made only in the most exceptional vintages.
