Sharpham Pinot Gris 'Little Bee' 2021

A complex and textured 'orange wine' produced with minimal intervention from start to finish. The nose has layered aromas of pink grapefruit, white nectarine, cider apple and orange peel, with more sour stone fruit flavours on the palate supported by broad and grippy tannins, taught acidity and a long generous finish.

Wine Making

The grapes were hand harvested in October before being removed from the stems and crushed. We let the juice soak in contact with the skins for two to three weeks to extract flavour, colour and tannin before transferring the free run juice into stainless steel where we waited for the fermentation to take place naturally by relying upon indigenous vineyard yeasts. The wine is bottled without any fining or filtration in order to maximise flavour and texture and can therefore appear slightly hazy with some harmless sediment.
