Sharpham wine is an English gem in Devon. They have been making wine for the last 40 years, making them a grande old dame of English wine making.
The New Release is made each year following the principles of Beaujolais Nouveau. Eight weeks after harvest winemaker Duncan Schwab checks each fermentation tank to find the right candidate for the new release. The wine must have finished fermenting and it must be fresh, clean and ready to drink. This is not a wine that needs any bottle age it should be drunk in the full flush of youth.
In 2021 the combination of Bacchus and Madeleine Angevine have produced a white wine with fresh, abundant elderflower and meadow aromas. There are hints of peach and apple fruit too.
The palate is dry with gorgeous crunchy apple fruit flavours and pleasing, gentle well-balanced acidity. The finish is clean, long and incredibly more-ish.
