• Bacchus More Information

    An intense, aromatic wine with tropicality, minerality, and characteristic English
    hedgerow. Made from 100% Bacchus grapes, best served lightly chilled.


    WINEMAKING NOTES
    A beautiful, long, hot summer in 2020 enabled the grapes to fully ripen on the
    vine, resulting in intensity of flavour and body.


    The 2020 Bacchus blend included fruit from Essex, Kent, and Hereford.
    Extended skin contact was used on specific parcels to enhance phenolics, before
    each parcel was fermented in individual lots at temperatures ranging from 12°C
    to 17°C, with selected yeast strains. After racking, the wines were selected and
    blended, then left to rest on fine lees before final filtration and bottling in May
    2021.


    TASTING
    Clear, pale lemon / light straw in colour.


    NOSE
    A heady nose of elderflower with an abundance of citrus, green mango and
    blackcurrant leaf.


    PALATE
    A fresh and zesty wine, with a balanced, rounded body. Crisp acidity adds excellent
    structure to the palate and lifts the light tropical and citrus character. Perfect with
    seafood.
