Offbeat Wines was established with a simple aim – to produce pure, unadulterated, and enjoyable English wines with environmental preservation and sustainability at the forefront of everything they do. Winemaker and owner, Daniel Ham works with small growers who take a considerate approach in the vineyard, avoiding the use of synthetic chemicals and doing most of the work by hand. The journey from grape to glass is also kept as simple as possible, employing age-old winemaking techniques and minimising inputs. All wines are fermented spontaneously, never fined or filtered and only receive sulphur dioxide additions when absolutely necessary.
Pet nat made from an 80/20 blend of 20 year old Madeleine Angevine & Rondo grown on a 1 hectare biodynamic vineyard in Wiltshire.
The fruit was pressed whole bunch, and co-fermented in a mixture of old oak and glass demijohn. Bottled via gravity with no fining, filtration, or additions of sulphur. Lightly disgorged to remove the headiest sediment, 367 bottles made.
