Visitors to this year’s Exeter Festival of South West Food & Drink (29th April to 1st May 2017) will be amongst the first to try Lyme Bay Winery’s four new wines. From their stand (5,08) the innovative Devon winery will be sampling and selling two new still white wines; Lyme Bay Sandbar and Bacchus Block, as well as two new sparkling wines; Lyme Bay Blanc de Noirs and Lyme Bay Sparkling Rosé.
Commenting on the new launches, James Lambert, managing director of Lyme Bay Winery, says: “We are delighted to have these wines available for all to try at such a key food festival in the South West. Our Head Winemaker, Liam Idzikowski, and the team here have been working hard to produce these delicious new still and sparkling wines.” James continues: “English wines are increasingly popular and so it’s brilliant that there will be such an exciting range of Devon wines to try at Exeter Festival of South West Food & Drink alongside the superb food offering from the county.”
Lyme Bay Sandbar 2015 is a fresh and zesty wine with a range of characteristics including grapefruit, guava, box wood and a hint of blackcurrant. Light to medium in body, Sandbar has a beautiful balanced acidity with a great affinity to food pairing, particularly light, citrus-led fish or chicken pasta dishes. It has a RRP of £13.79.
A serious wine which will appeal to the discerning wine audience, Lyme Bay Blanc de Noirs is made using 100% Pinot Noir grapes. The red fruit characters have a strong presence in this white sparkling wine. It has a light copper hue in its appearance with fine, consistent bubbles. On the nose it is rich and earthy with forward strawberry and cherry notes and a delicious richness on the palate is offset by a crisp acidity and a light toast finish.
The new sparkling wines join Lyme Bay’s existing Classic Cuvée and Brut Reserve. Lyme Bay Sparkling Rosé, Lyme Bay Blanc de Noirs and Classic Cuvée all have a RRP of £24.50. Lyme Bay Brut Reserve has a RRP of £19.39.
