Albourne Estate Bacchus 2018

£14.99

12.0% ABV
Aromatic complexity - elderflower to green pepper, from mango to lime

Albourne Estate’s Bacchus is a blend of multiple unique batches. Bacchus is one of the stars of their range, delivering a distinctive wine characterised by water-white paleness, a crisp refreshing mouthfeel and notable aromatic complexity. This vintage was enhanced by the warmth of the 2018 summer lending a touch more texture and richness to the wine. The diversity of aromas range from elderflower to green pepper, from mango to lime, to lemon thyme, fresh Thai basil & oregano. Alison Nightingale began her working life in multi-national marketing before changing to a more creative, fulfilling and balanced path, setting up Albourne Estate. She selected the site of the vineyard not only for its stunning views of the South Downs, but for its slope, aspect, altitude and geology: tracing the beautiful south-facing slope of a low ridge created by underlying Cretaceous green sandstone. These features provide excellent drainage, low frost risk and maximum sun exposure. Albourne grow seven grape varieties planted across multiple clones and rootstock.
