Our Bacchus is ever evolving and the 2019 is the latest step in our quest to produce the best Bacchus in England. Loved by many critics including Oz Clarke it is the perfect wine for those looking for something similar to, but perhaps more interesting than a new-world Sauvignon Blanc.
Ben likes to extract as much complexity and flavour from the Bacchus grape as possible. He does this by picking fruit from different vineyards at different times and handling the individual lots of grapes according to their ripeness levels. Bacchus is a complex variety and can produce wines that are floral, citrusy, herbaceous and leafy. It can present itself as an aged Riesling or as a young, new-world Sauvignon blanc depending on how it has been produced.
The wine displays many of the wonderful sides of Bacchus: fresh lime peel and a lavender like perfume underpinned by elderflower and a peppery spice. It is crisp yet refined on the palate making it a refreshing, palate cleansing wine that is a perfect accompaniment to seafood.
