Stopham Estate Vineyard’s story began in 2007 when winemaker Simon Woodhead planted 21,000 vines on his sandy south-facing15 acre estate, following the successful completion of a Viticulture course at Plumpton Agricultural College in East Sussex. Joined by Assistant Winemaker Tom Bartlett in 2010, just in time for the first vintage, the pair share a common passion for English wine. Their Bacchus is, unusually, off-dry, with moderate acidity. This gives it a gentler and arguably more food-friendly profile. The nose is a swirling mix of floral, elderflower dominant, notes and citrus – grapefruit and mandarin – elements. A sophisticated, intellectually and taste-bud stimulating Bacchus.
