Sumaridge Maritimus

Sumaridge Estate Wines

£89.70per case of 6

Tasting Notes:

This robust blend of four stunning white varietals shows all the character of its birthplace with perfectly balanced sunny chardonnay fruit, grassy sauvignon crispness and a refreshing ‘seaside’ minerality. All this, with a long lasting, lively finish create a food wine beyond comparison.

Food Pairing:

Perfectly matched with seafood, particularly spicy dishes such as chilli prawns or spicy calamari. Try a spicy rub on fish to bring out the full character of the wine

PLEASE NOTE: This purchase is for a case of 6 bottles (£14.95 per bottle)

Wine Making

All grapes hand sorted with Chardonnay and Semillon whole bunch pressed straight to barrel. Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier de-stemmed and crushed through press to stainless steel tanks. All varieties kept separate with spontaneous “wild” yeast. Individual batches are matured for three months on fermentation lees. The batches are blended and matured with fine lees contact for a further three months through winter and bottled in spring. The wine is cellared for at least year in bottle before release.
