At Davenport Vineyards, Will Davenport has been making wines for nearly 20 years, building from a small start up to a collection of vineyard sites that total 20 acres. The aim is to make wine of the highest quality possible and to make wine that is a true expression of their grape varieties, soil and climate of the vineyards. He believes that the best way to achieve this is by interfering as little as possible and letting nature take its course (with a modicum of guidance of course). The use of organic methods helps to bring the desired results and has the benefit of also minimising their impact on the environment. Copper and sulphur are used to control mildew, along with plant extracts made from seaweed, comfrey and nettles. Made from a blend of six grape varieties (including Bacchus, Ortega, Siegerrebe, Faber and Huxelrebe) grown in the original vineyard plot at Horsmonden, Kent. This wine has been made every year since 1993 and has won many accolades since then. The wine has been likened to a Sauvignon Blanc style and often mistaken for a NZ wine. It is crisp, aromatic and fruit driven with greengage and grapefruit flavours and pronounced hedgerow accents.
