Sandbar

Made from 100% Bacchus grapes, this fresh and zesty wine has a range of characteristics including grapefruit, guava, box wood and a hint of blackcurrant. Best served lightly chilled.

WINEMAKING NOTES

When deciding when to pick our Bacchus grapes we either aim to pick them before the grapes are considered ripe, or once the grapes are considered overripe. This Sandbar is a wine resulting from some early picking between the 12th and 13th October 2015 from two vineyards, one in Devon and one in Kent. After crushing and destemming, the segregated juices were cold settled for 48 hours before being inoculated with four specially selected yeast strains to maximise the varietal character. Following fermentation, the wine was gently racked, then left to age for four months on fine lees to improve structure and mouth-feel, before being bottled at the end of February 2016.
