Sharpham Dry Estate Selection 2021
Highly Commended - South West Vineyards Association Competition
This fine dry style exhibits the best qualities of English wine. Characterised by its pale lemon colour and long refreshing finish it is an elegant wine. The taste of fresh fruits gives a youthful fresh sensation with good balance and length. It is a great aperitif wine and an ideal accompaniment to fish.
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.
