To Boldly Go opens a new frontier in winemaking – or do we mean perry making?
Our craziest idea yet has brought together Bacchus grapes, sourced by our lovely friend Ingrid from Dunleavy Vineyards, with mid-season Herefordshire perry pears - Green Horse and Hendre Huffcap. Throw in carbonic maceration and spontaneous co-fermentation, and the result is the creation of a pét nat that is – yep – out of this world!
Insanely aromatic, all peach, elderflower and hedgerow flowers. The sparkle is extremely fine, making it soft and creamy in the mouth. There's flavours of lemon zest, grapefruit pith, passion fruit, basil leaf, lime oil and just a hint of sweetness. Ultimately it’s totally crushable and a lot of fun!
As far as we know, this is a first. Since it's not purely apples, unfortunately it does attract wine duty, hence the price being what it is. With just over 500 bottles, if you can, do grab a bit of history.
