‘Behind the Label’ – 2015 Plumpton Estate, Pinot Blanc, East Sussex, England (£11.00, Marks & Spencer). Plumpton is a famous agricultural college and it is the UK’s leading centre for winemaking and grape-growing studies. This elite institution also makes wine and I am thrilled to say that this is the finest English Pinot Blanc ever. Sleek, smooth, moreish and distinguished, three cheers for Plumpton! Food-wise drink it with either the Thai veggie curry or Chicken and prawn laksa recipes.

Since the original 400-acre College farm was bought back in 1919, Plumpton College has certainly seen a lot of changes.
