The fruit was hand harvested in April so the equivalent of our October.
Fruit of different ripeness levels and the use of several wine making techniques has developed a level of complexity in the wine. The grower believes this makes for an appealing and intriguing style of Sauvignon Blanc.
“It is beautifully lifted on the nose showing rockmelon, nectarine, lime zest and subtle herbaceous notes. The palate delivers loads of tasty flavours and excellent fruit intensity, leading to a lingering mouth-watering finish. It is generously expressed and immensely likable. At its best: now to 2018.” 90/100, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2016
Brightside Sauvignon Blanc
As with all wines on this website, this wine is made without animal products. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. Many vegan wines are also organic or better still bio-dynamically grown. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
