Grape Varieties - Madeleine Angevine & Bacchus.
Silver - South West Vineyards Competition
This dry and ever popular wine has a light, fresh character achieved by carefully blending the different grape varieties and partially ageing in American oak. Lovely fruit aromas with supple delicate flavours and a just off-dry style resulting in a wine ideal for drinking alone or with food. (abv 11% - 2018)
At the forefront of vine growing and wine making in the UK, Sharpham is widely recognised as producing some of England's most outstanding wines. They have been producing wine for over twenty years and their awards include regional, national and international medals - including four Seals of Approval at the 2004 International Wine Challenge. Offering intense fruit flavours and aromas, these stylish wines are made from carefully selected grape varieties grown on both their own sheltered slopes overlooking the River Dart, and occasionally from other carefully selected vineyards across the south west of England.
This thousand year old farm consists of five hundred acres owned by the Sharpham Trust. The house, designed in 1770 by Sir Robert Taylor, overlooks the fields and wooded slopes above the River Dart, two miles downstream of the ancient market town of Totnes. Sharpham's aim today is to farm successfully in the modern context and to produce world class wine and cheese in harmony with the environment and the natural beauty of the Estate.
