Ben will pre-record his tasting of these two rare wines from our cellar, so that when watching yourselves, you can taste alongside Ben and pause/re-start the tasting as it suits you. We only have a limited number of bottles, so it’s first come first served!
Our Bacchus Fumé has been a special Venn project right from the very beginning. In 2017 we released Bacchus from our first vintage (2016) that Ben had aged in Burgdundian barrels for a year. It took on a new life, transforming it from a crisp, clean Sauvignon style to something akin to a complex, nutty Riesling. It was so popular that we have released variations of a Bacchus Fumé every year just for Venn members. Because these are such complex wines, and we have a handful of bottles remaining in our library stock, we thought it’d be interesting to release a few of these from two different years to give you the chance to see how Bacchus can develop after both time in oak and bottle. We think it could be fun and would love for you to join in and send us your feedback too.
As well as detailed tasting notes and winemaking records, Ben will record a video tasting to guide you through the wines and explain why and how they’ve developed, as well as the differences between them.
