Success at the Independent English Wine Awards 2023

Our Barons Lane range ruled supreme at this year’s Independent English Wine Awards 2023. Our Barons Lane Rose and Red 2021 picked up Silver Medals, whilst the Barons Lane White 2021 was awarded Bronze.

Barons Lane itself runs through the heart of our Estate, between our heritage vineyards and recent plantations on Church Hill (the site of one of the earliest vineyards established in the 12th Century). The Barons Lane range represents New Hall’s trademark winemaking style of clean, fresh, elegant, and extremely quaffable wines, suitable to enjoy both in the garden and in the dining room.

Barons Lane White 2021: As served in Pontlands Park Hotel, Chelmsford

A wine demonstrating a perfect balance between fresh fruit and minerality – think French Sauvignon. Incredibly refreshing, with notes of pear, grapefruit, and lemon on the palate and a hint of honeysuckle and English hedgerow on the nose. Pair with fresh grilled asparagus drizzled with lemon, or serve alongside a charcuterie board as a mouth-watering aperitif.

Barons Lane Red 2021: As served in the Blue Strawberry, Hatfield Peverel

This wine is drinking impressively well right now, as agreed by our team and on-trade customers alike. Full of black cherry and bramble fruit with a hint of red cherry and almond, juicy dark fruits, tomato leaf and a smoky peppery characters leading to a firm, well-structured finish. Pair with lamb kofta, summer barbeques, roasted vegetable pasta and mushroom stroganoff.

Barons Lane Rose 2021: As served in Chelmsford Theatre bars

With a pale salmon hue showcasing Pinot Noir, Barons Lane Rose is packed full of summer fruits, red apples and white peach. Pinot Meunier expresses itself in dark cherry fruit on the mid-palate, and the finish is delicately creamy. Pair with a fresh salad of pea shoots, goats cheese, toasted walnuts, and roasted beetroot.
