Sharpham Little Bee Wild Ferment Pinot Gris
Experimental skin-contact white from Devonshire pioneers Sharpham.
While the majority of the fruit for this wine still comes from Sharpham Estate near Totnes in Devon, the wine is now made over the river at the winery's new home, Sandridge Barton. Pinot Gris is a grape we expect to see more and more of in the UK, with its own unique style that is quite unlike the ripe Alsatian or crisp Italian versions. The wine has been made in the skin-contact, or orange style, with the grapes' skins soaking in the juice for two to three weeks to extract colour and texture before fermentation. The result is a hazy, elegantly pale orange wine with complex stone fruit flavours and vibrant acidity.
