Sharpham wine is an English gem in Devon. They have been making wine for the last 40 years, making them a grande old dame of English wine making.The New Release is made each year following the principles of Beaujolais Nouveau. Eight weeks after harvest winemaker Duncan Schwab checks each fermentation tank to find the right candidate for the new release. The wine must have finished fermenting and it must be fresh, clean and ready to drink. This is not a wine that needs any bottle age it should be drunk in the full flush of youth.Often the new release will be a combination of Bacchus and Madeleine Angevine. We can expect flavours and aromas of apple, elderflower and English spring meadows. Of course, part of the fun is that we won't know what it tastes like until the 17 November - this is a fast and fun wine.The History of New ReleaseFirst made in 2006, Sharpham New Release was a rebuff to the French after they banned beef exports in the wake of the BSE crisis.As a proud west-country business, Sharpham stood in solidarity with the farmers of the area and gave them an English alternative to Beaujolais Nouveau.The launch of New Release was marked with a race from Sharpham winery, then in the grounds of Sharpham house, up the river dart to Totnes, up the high street, finishing at the Totnes Wine Shop.The wine proved incredibly popular and has since become an annual bottling for Sharpham.
