Sharpham Dart Valley Reserve

Soft, fruity English white; picnic optional. 

Perhaps Sharpham's core white wine, 100% Madeleine Angevine. This wine is ripe and fruit driven and has a rich profile. Stone fruits such as white peach dominate the nose. The palate is rounded with sweet apricot and a subtle spice on the finish

A blend of free run and pressed juice fermented in stainless steel tanks with a small proportion having French oak contact before being carefully blended. This is our largest production wine of about 20,000 bottles per year.

Historically there has been an indifference to hybrid grapes like Madeleine; if they're not good enough to be grown internationally, why should we care? Well, here's why: in England's often marginal climate, it makes a consistently delicious, bright, fruity white wine, great for lovers of Loire Valley Chenin Blanc. Sharpham have had a great deal of success with the grape, first planting it next to the old manor house over thirty years ago.
