Grape variety: Bacchus
Tasting notes: Not unlike a good Sauvignon Blanc. On the nose, there are aromas of citrus, cut grass and subtle toasty characters with vanilla like spice notes. The palate is fine and balanced with delicate complexity.
Food pairing: With its versatility, this is the dream wine for food pairing. While silky texture harmonises with many cheese and dairy based dishes, the showstopper will always be seafood; shellfish and white fish.
Winemaker's notes: Grapes were whole bunch pressed, with half of the juice fermenting in third fill French oak barrels to help build texture and structure, the remainder in stainless steel. Both batches were allowed to mature on lees for 6 months before blending and bottling.
