Kerry Vale Vineyard

This is only my second single varietal Solaris (to my knowledge), and certainly the first wine I’ve tasted from Shropshire.

Vivid and lively on the nose, this wine has a distinct citrus character with strong grapefruit and lemon aromas. Fresh and clean notes of gooseberry and grass awaken the senses and suggest this wine is going to be a delight to drink.

On the palate, a well-balanced acidity keeping the wine refreshing and dry. The grapefruit character continues through accompanied by green apple, with a short but pleasant flinty mineral and floral aftertaste.

Very refreshing to drink, I think this would be a perfect summer white to enjoy on those warmer days.

Winemakers Description:

This crisp, dry wine has a lovely gooseberry nose and is full of citrus flavours rounded off with grapefruit and hints of refreshing apple. Enjoy as an aperitif or an ideal accompaniment to seafood, chicken or with roast pork and tangy apple sauce.
