Bacchus is typically an expressive, extroverted variety with strong aromas. Our 2018 Bacchus is no exception. The grapes were picked by hand, the fruit was very clean and displayed good ripeness levels in both sugars and flavours. Following whole bunch pressing the grapes, were fermented at a cool temperature to preserve the fresh, fruit forward aromas. After a short period of lees ageing, the wine was filtered and bottled.Grape Variety: Bacchus
Character: Crisp, delicate, intensely aromatic
Aromas: Gooseberry, elderflower, kiwi, tomato leaf
Flavours: Citrus, gooseberry
Style: For those that like a Sauvignon Blanc. Great both with and without food. Try it with roast chicken, seafood or vegetarian dishes.
Winemaker’s notes: Bacchus is typically one of the most expressive varieties grown in the U.K. often compared to Sauvignon Blanc. The warm summer and autumn has resulted in a bacchus displaying an array of tropical fruit characters, pineapple, passionfruit, kiwi along with the typical fresh cut grass and tomato leaf aromas. The palate is dry and refreshing perfect for either drinking on its own or with food. Serve at 8-10°c.
