Shoreline

A wine for seafood; well-balanced and refreshing with complex layers. This beautiful wine has enticing notes of rose petal, pineapple and lime.

WINEMAKING NOTES

2016 probably saw some of the ripest fruit ever produced in England. Yields were very good from our growers in the East, with our Devon and Dorset vineyards less fortunate in quantity, but not quality. The grapes were hand harvested at a leisurely pace, because of the warm dry weather and lack of disease pressure, from the 7th to the 21st of October 2016.

The Shoreline is a blend of Bacchus, Pinot Blanc, Seyval Blanc & Reichensteiner, with each of the parcels fermented separately with different yeast strains & temperatures to make several complex layers of flavours and aromas. Upon completion, the different vats were assessed for potential and characteristics, then blended together in the optimum proportions. The resulting Shoreline blend was aged for four months on fine lees to improve structure & mouth-feel, before being bottled at the end of February 2017 to preserve its freshness.
