Product details

  • Variety

    Bacchus
  • Bacchus is arguably the Flagship grape for English still wines. Whilst it has Riesling in its lineage, most would say Bacchus expresses itself more similarly to Sauvignon Blanc, but with its own unique qualities.

    Thanks to England's cool maritime climate and long growing season, Lyme Bay's Bacchus shows fresh and bright acidity with a complex and pronounced delivery of grapefuit, cut-grass, elderflower and gooseberry flavours.

Winemaking

The fruit was hand harvested from the 1st to the 5th October 2014 at the point of optimum flavour ripeness. The grapes were carefully destemmed and crushed, then gently pressed to protect the delicate flavours. After cold settling to remove any solids, the juice was fermented at cool temperatures (12-15°C) using specially selected yeast to maximise the varietal character. Following fermentation, the wine was gently racked, then left to age for four months on fine lees to improve structure and mouth-feel.

Food recommendation

Avocado, asparagus, seasonal greens, roasted vegetables, mushrooms, mackerel, fish and chips, chicken, pork, veal, aromatic spice, goats cheese.
