This is an exciting depature from the normal style of Sharpham wine. It is the brainchild of the young and dynamic assitant winemaker, Charlie Brown. His "wild ferment" is much closer to an orange or natural style of wine having spent three weeks on its skins before fermentation. An exciting wine which highlights the potential for England to develop its own distinctive styles of classic varietals.

The nose has vibrant notes of nectarine, green citrus and fennel. The palate is bursting with sour stone fruit and it shows taught, pithy grapefruit like texture with a touch of spice and gentle tannins. The finish is clean and refreshing.

The wine has not been fined or filtered either (which means there may be sediment in the bottle).

A great pairing with fresh grilled fish, crab or as an aperitif or aromatic Asian dishes.

Devon, England

Devon's vineyards are situatued in the valleys and lowlands of south and east Devon. Mostly close to the rivers Exe, Teign and Dart.

The growing season is long, with sun and heat starting earlier and lasting longer than in many other English counties. This gives the grapes more time to ripen and more time to hang.
