Yr Afanc is a monster release from Dell Vineyard and we're thrilled to have an allocation of Lucy and Dan Alford's first vintage of this terrific low-intervention creation.
The Afanc is a mythical beast who slinks in the depths of a Welsh mountain lake. It is said to prey upon any foolish enough to fall into its pristine waters.
But who could resist jumping into this blend of Seyval Blanc, Pinot Noir and Phoenix grape varieties, cultivated between the Wye and Usk valleys in a 20 year old vineyard.
It's a low-intervention wine made using wild, natural yeasts, carbonically macerated and carefully pressed. The wine is then matured for a further 10 months with regular lees stirring before bottling to add a wonderful texture and richness.
Bottled in Wales by Mountain People Wine and we absolutely love the illustration on the label is by local artist Dan Bright!
