No wonder Lyme Bay Shoreline 2021 is so complex – it’s a white wine produced from six grape varieties – Bacchus, Reichensteiner, Seyval Blanc, Solaris, Ortgea, Pinot Noir – from vineyards in Devon, Oxfordshire and Essex and each wine was fermented separately with different strains of yeast and at different temperatures. No oak was used to produce Lyme Bay Shoreline 2021 but additional complexity comes from the blending and from ageing the wine on its lees. Stainless steel fermentation vessels ensure the wine is predominantly fresh and fruity – lemons & limes, ripe apples and hints of pineapple. Though technically on the borderline between dry and off-dry, the wine has lovely fresh acidity which gives it an overall feel of a crisp, dry wine. It’s lovely & smooth and only 11.5% ABV. No wonder it’s Lyme Bay’s best-selling English wine.
