Skin Contact Bacchus 2020, Saddle Goose

£35.00 £30.00
Saddle Goose, founded by Adam Collins with the help of Mother Goose (aka his mother) is a small craft wine company passionate about English grapes and wine production. They aim to push the boundaries of what's possible with English wine, whilst treading lightly on the environment and making positive change in the world.
They find inspiration from ancestral winemaking practices of old and blend it with modern winemaking thinking and technology. They do this so they don't just make tasty wine, but to constantly surprise people with what's possible from local British grapes! They believe that wine is a natural and constantly evolving product that reflects the vineyard the grapes were grown, the UK climate and the style in which it was made. That's what makes each bottle so unique, as it paints a delicious picture of a time and place. 

In Adam's own words: 

"I'm a small English winemaker based out of Kent. I make limited release (around 3000 bottles across 3 styles) crafted English wine, made with minimal intervention. For the 2021 vintage, I created a Barrel-aged Bacchus with a touch of skin-contact, a Pinot Noir Pet-Nat and a Bacchus Pet-Nat. The two 2020 wines I entered into the Independent English Wine Awards won a bronze and a silver and I'm hoping for more next year"
