Bacchus is a grape that needs to be picked before becoming over-ripe to retain its intense and distinctive grapey flavours.
London clay (of Tertiary age) with chalk, concealed below the clay deposits.
After fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats at 12 - 18 degrees, the wine was left on its lees for 3 months for body and to retain the primary fruit aromas.
Lime, apples and nettles on the nose. The palate is alive with lemon/lime acidity and an attractive, flinty minerality.
Everyday serving suggestion:
White meat and fish or as an aperitif
We have drunk several bottles of this excellent wine. Bacchus is being planted more and more widely and is well suited to the English climate. A refreshing wine but also a wine with substance.
