Lovells Late Harvest Siegerrebe

Lovells Late Harvest Siegerrebe – perfect conditions in the vineyard produced this wonderful late harvest wine. Siegerrebe (a crossing between Madeleine Angevine and Gewurstraminer) hit some of the highest sugars in the vineyard. Picked in November when the grapes were almost raisin-like but the acidity could still hold the juice together 500 kilos of what was potentially a ton of grapes were picked, the concentration of the grapes meant only a small amount of wine was produced – a case of quality over quantity.

In the glass Lovells’ Late Harvest is bronze-straw colour with a Williams Pear and Elderflower nose. On the palate honey and pear are most prominent, whilst the after taste is almost dried banana and sherry. The sweetness is contained by the acidity which creates a perfect balance.

This wine would be an amenable accompaniment to cheese, pate and lighter desserts. Served chilled.

Lovells Late Harvest Siegerrebe: Nestled at the foot of the inspirational Malvern Hills, in the village of Welland, Lovells Vineyard is a family run English vineyard established in 2010.

In 2013 they undertook the management of the Elgar Wine brand that had originated down the road at Tiltridge Vineyard.

“We produce clean, crisp and fruity wines – typical of the English style – dry whites, subtle pinks and fizz. Our wines are available from our vineyard, specialist retail outlets and restaurants.

In 2008 our family moved to the village of Welland in Malvern where we made the bold decision to establish a vineyard.

Although the idea to start a vineyard was a moment of inspiration, the actual job of setting up a working vineyard took a lot of research and hard work.

In 2010 we planted our first 900 vines. In 2012 we planted a further 4,000. And in 2013 we undertook the management of Tiltridge Vineyard which was established 25 years ago and had developed the Elgar Brand.

Together with two more sites we planted this year with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, we manage four vineyard sites and ten different varieties of grapes across 15 acres.

Ours is a story of a hobby that became more serious: from an ambition to prove to friends and family that we could produce a decent English wine in Welland to a commercial operation potentially producing 25,000 bottles of wine a year. http://www.lovellsvineyard.co.uk/our-story/

We market our wines using the name of one of Britain’s greatest composers Sir Edward Elgar and his music. Sir Elgar was born in Worcestershire, and spent much of his life around the Malvern’s and is laid to rest at the nearby St Wulstans Church. 

The Elgar Birthplace Museum is a great source of information and we are indebted for their help and co-operation”.
