Sharpham have been producing wine for nearly twenty five years from carefully selected grape varieties grown on their sheltered slopes overlooking the River Dart. Traditional and new world techniques are employed resulting in a range of distinctive and carefully balanced wines. Their Pinot Noir fruit is part crushed and cold macerated for at least a week prior to the fermentation with the inclusion of some whole bunch and stems. There is a post fermentation maceration period of at least a week before a partial malolactic fermentation. This wine then spent 3 months in second fill French oak barrels prior to bottling. The result is a ripe and youthful cool climate Pinot Noir showing wild strawberry, cherry with subtle spice – full flavoured with juicy red berries and broad tannins. Drinking well now but will improve with time.
