Chafor Wine Estate

English Bacchus has become one of my favourite varietals over the last year, it’s a style of fresh easy drinking white that I just can’t grow tired of.

One of the most immediate qualities of this wine is the really rich mineral nose, combined with lemon zest & grapefruit notes and finally hints of white flower, green grass and fresh herbs.

Palate is excellently judged, initially fruit focused with a mix of apple, lemon, lime and slight off-dry hints of tropics. Paired with a mild but pronounced acidity then a chalky mineral floral aftertaste that really stamps a signature on the wine.

So light and fresh, but that dry mineral finish really makes this an enjoyable bottle of wine.

Winemarkers Description:

Crisp, elegant and refined, this wine reflects the true varietal character of this quintessentially English grape with a balance of elderflower, inviting minerality and zesty tropical undertones.
