Wine making notes - The fruit was hand harvested from September 30th to October 8th 2014 and brought directly to their winery. Seyval Blanc and Bacchus grapes were gently de-stemmed and crushed prior to pressing, while the Pinot Noir was pressed with bunches still intact. After cold setting, the resulting juices were carefully separated to undergo cool fermentation using a variety of different yeasts for complexity and interest. Upon completion the different vats were assessed for potential and characteristics, then blended together in the optimum proportions. The resulting 'Shoreline' blend was aged for four months on fine lees to improve structure and mouth-feel.
In 2008 Lyme Bay Winery embarked on an adventure born from passion, ambition and a dream: to make outstanding English Wines embodying Lyme Bay Winery's fruit-driven, award-winning ethos. East Devon enjoys a temperate climate with a long, warm growing season. Their search for the right land for the vineyards took a while but in 2010 they planted 26,000 vines and with hard work and dedication they were rewarded with an excellent first harvest in 2014.
Here at The Cheese Larder, South Molton we are delighted to offer you the Lyme Bay Winery range of one sparkling wine and four still English Wines and to be part of their exciting and award-winning journey.
