Daniel & Nicola Ham work from their cellar in Wiltshire, sourcing the best grapes they can find from mostly local vineyards & making pure & exciting wines completely free of additives.
The Search is a light pet nat made from a 60/40 blend of Orion and Phoenix, grown on a small organic 1 hectare vineyard in Oxfordshire. Whole bunches were gently pressed over 7 hours, and co-fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel. After a long, slow fermentation, the wine was bottled via gravity with no fining, filtration, or additions of sulphur. Only 565 bottles made.
We recomment lightly swirling the bottle to incorporate the sediment for a full flavour experience.
