Daniel Ham works from a new winery in Wiltshire, sourcing sustainably farmed grapes from local vineyards and making wine completely free of additives.
"‘Wild Juice Chase’ is a carbonic red pet nat made from Triomphe, again from the 2019 harvest. The fruit came from an old (35 years) and gnarly vineyard in the Test Valley. The fruit was sealed, whole bunch, in a stainless steel vat for 5 days before being pressed and left to spontaneously ferment. The wine was then bottled with a small amount of the natural sugars remaining to complete fermentation. No additions."
