From vine to bottle in 8 weeks. This white alternative to Beaujolais Nouveau released on the 3rd Thursday of November. Sharpham focus on ‘free run’ juice that gets fermented in stainless steel tanks. Almost as soon as the ferments have finished, the wine is carefully blended and bottled in time for early release.
This wine is bursting with ripe stone fruit, tinned peaches and pear drop aromas and expressing tonnes of fruit on the palate with the signature spritz that sits perfectly alongside the zippy acidity. There are only 1392 bottles in existence, so make sure you buy yours soon!
Pairs well with fresh grilled fish, crab or as an aperitif.
