Camel Valley Atlantic Dry 2018

£13.49

11.90% ABV
Characteristic aromas of grapefruit and elderflower, mellow citrus flavours and juicy acidity

When ex-RAF pilot Bob Lindo and his wife Annie planted their first eight thousand vines in 1989, they never dreamed of the phenomenal success they would achieve within 2 decades.   They had bought their farm in the heart of the Cornish countryside several years earlier, seeking a change from service life and the perfect place to bring up their young family, and initially farmed sheep and cattle. For the Atlantic Dry, which is a mix of classic English vineyard varieties, the grapes are grown in the south of England over an ancient slate sub-soil, where the long cool growing season gives the wine its unique English acidity. The grapes are crushed and pressed and the juice cooled to 4°C to retain the special fruit characters that are unique to grapes grown in England. Fermented in stainless steel tanks at no more than 13°C. Characteristic aromas of grapefruit, elderflower and green fruit, bright lemon in colour, good intensity, with a very fresh clean finish.
