Bacchus Block 2022
A rich expression of Bacchus, our Block 2022 was hand harvested on 24th and 30th September 2022, both parcels were gently crushed before macerating on the skins for 6 hours. The extended maceration process helps extract more intense pungency, texture & weight, producing a richer style of Bacchus. Fermentation was undertaken using thiol-enhancing yeast strains to further develop the aromatic nature of the varietal. The wine was aged on fine lees, with a portion in ex-white Bordeaux barrels, to accentuate the complexity and mouthfeel and give generous depth and richness, before blending. A perfect accompaniment to a fragrant broad bean salad, asparagus, or even Chinese food.
TASTING: Clear, pale lemon in colour.
NOSE: An intense nose with layers of gooseberry, pineapple, blackcurrant leaf & lime.
PALATE: A beautiful, balanced wine with excellent structure, including tropical fruit, blackcurrant leaf and a smooth mouthfeel. Steely lime acidity continues into a finish that just keeps on going.
