Lyme Bay Bacchus 2020

£15.99

11.0% ABV
Citrus, green mango, blackcurrant leaf and minerality, plus English hedgerow character

Lyme Bay’s Bacchus 2020 is made from 100% Bacchus grapes, arguably the flagship variety 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 citrus, green mango, blackcurrant leaf and minerality, plus English hedgerow character. After crushing and destemming, the segregated juices were cold settled for 48 hours before being inoculated with four specially selected yeast strains to maximise the varietal character. Following fermentation, the wine was gently racked, then left to age on fine lees to improve structure and mouth-feel before being bottled. The wine was then allowed to settle and develop in-bottle for several months, before release.
