Notes: "In the winery we’ve progressively stepped further back from intervention. In recent years this means almost no use of sulphites and no additions of any other kind. Our wines today are simply the honest living reflection of fruit fermented by nature and bottled simply with nothing added or stripped away. My reasons for this are simple; in my opinion clean farmed organic fruit is fundamental to a wines potential to be healthy for human consumption. Once the wine is fermented with a diverse population of natural microflora, including lactobacillus, it’s important to not filter these away. In the same way that beneficial anthocyanins are part of red wine, we choose to draw on skin and seed coat extraction of many white varieties thereby increasing their tannic and antioxidant gifts to the wine. These methods also mean we can mostly avoid the need for sulphite additions which can be harmful to some consumers." -Cambridge Road
