London CRU Baker street Bacchus 2018
Very clear in the glass with a hint of green gold colour. Aromas of pears, apple blossom, peach, elderflower and pair drops combine with cut grass and hedgerow. Classic Bacchus notes. The palate follows this through with refreshing fruits and a slight buttery texture with some textured acidity.
Made from a blend of two separate Vineyards, Sandhurst in Kent and Great Whitman's Essex. This is an interesting take on the classic English Bacchus and a good example of English white wine with a clearly defined wine makers influence. A beautifully aromatic style of wine with a quintessentially English profile.
Grape : Bacchus
Serve with : cod, lemon sole, white fish.
International Wine Challenge 2017 - Silver
'Fresh and appealing Sauvignon-like nose, with lime, gooseberry, herbal and grassy notes. Judicious oak use (23% of the wine spends seven months in used premier cru Burgundy barrels) adds a delightful creaminess to the palate, well balanced by fresh acidity, plus notes of citrus interwoven with passionfruit, fresh pineapple and subtle elderflower. Ends with a crisp grapefruit bite.''
