I’ve heard that Blossom Hill is fruity, but what about the acidity?
The acidity of wine varies depending on the amount of tartic acid per volume. All Blossom Hill wines have a pH level of 7 and contain between 4.5g/l and 7g/l depending on the blend of wine and the vintage.
I am sensitive to cinnamon and/or E210-219, Can I still drink Blossom Hill?
Cinnamon and/or E210-E219 are not ingredients of Blossom Hill Red or White wines, nor are they used in the production process. You can safely drink any of the Blossom Hill wines.
What about wheat or gluten? Are they used in the production of Blossom Hill?
We can confirm that no GM Organisms, Gluten, wheat or cereals derivatives are used during the production of Blossom Hill nor are they ingredients of the wine. If you suffer wheat allergies you can safely drink Blossom Hill.
How long can I keep Blossom Hill wine?
Why hold on to it? Blossom Hill wines are best drunk as young as possible. Therefore, we recommend that you buy the wines as close to the date they are going to be drunk as possible.
Do Blossom Hill wines contain Sulphates/Sulphites?
Sulphites are added as preservatives (in the form of sulphur dioxide) to all Blossom Hill wines. We do not have any requested analysis about sulphates. It is very likely however that sulphates can be found in Blossom Hill wines.

Are Blossom Hill wines suitable for vegetarians?
Unless approved by The Vegetarian Society, no wine can be guaranteed as suitable for vegans or vegetarians, as there may be occasions when non vegetarian processing aids may be used to finish the wine.
So how exactly is the wine produced? Do you use casks? A range of chemicals?
We use a range of commonly used fining agents to clarify our wine before filtering it. On occasion this might include gelatin or albumen.
Casks are used for our Winemaker’s Reserve Chardonnay and our Winemaler’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
I’ve read that all sorts of fruit can go into wine, like blackberries, blackcurrants and raspberries. Is that true?
Whilst the taste and aroma of Blossom Hill fruitful wines may give the illusion of a variety of different fruits, only grapes are used in the production process.
In terms of storing Blossom Hill, what is its shelf life?
We bottle all of our wines when they are ready to drink. In order to appreciate the fresh fruity character and modern style of Blossom Hill red and white wines, we recommend prompt consumption.
Bottles can be stored however, for up to one year, in a cool dry place.

Standard Blossom Hill wines come in 750ml bottles but we also produce a 25cl sizes. These are available in supermarkets nationwide.
