Daniel Ham works from a new winery in Wilthire, sourcing sustainably farmed grapes from local vineyards and making wine completely free of additives.
"‘Skinny Dip’ is a cracking amber wine made from Solaris picked in 2018 from the Organic vineyard in Devon. The fruit was destemmed into amphora and fermented spontaneously on skins. The wine macerated for 3 months and was aged for a further 8 months before being bottled without fining, filtration or any SO2 additions. The wine will have spent 9 months under cork before being released. The wine has an amazing burnt orange colour with incredible purity, salinity and spice on the palate. Such a versatile wine."
