Knightor Winery Three Barrels Bacchus 2019

£16.99

8% ABV
Peach, honeyed oak, elderflower presse and delicate apple

A small amount of Knightor’s total Bacchus crop was pressed and fermented in old French oak barrels with the intention of blending with their tank fermented dry Bacchus. However, these three barrels naturally stopped fermenting, leaving behind considerable residual sugar, resulting in a unique, fragrant and sweet small batch wine. The Bacchus grapes were harvested on the 4th of October showing good levels of ripeness and retaining very good acidity due to the relatively cool ripening conditions of 2019. The wine was allowed to run its own course and left to nature, the ferment gradually running to a halt in mid December. It is a very different expression of Bacchus compared to your typical dry style. The aromas are a little more reserved and grown up, peach, elderflower and delicate vanilla come to the fore. The palate is surprisingly rich for an English wine, showing honeyed oak, elderflower presse and delicate apple. The finish is sweet and long. Perfect with cheeses and fruity desserts. Knightor make premium quality, limited production English wines from grapes grown in English vineyards and their own vines at Portscatho and Seaton on the south Cornish coast.
