Welland Valley – Bacchus 2013

Bacchus Book Cover Bacchus
Welland Valley

This is the second wine I’ve tried from Leicestershire’s Welland Valley, and I would say it’s the best wine I’ve had from the midlands so far.

The nose is very inviting, with a mixture of grapefruit & tropical fruits with elderflower and flint.

Vivid citrus flavours – lots of lemon and lime with good acidity with a fruity mid taste with papaya tropics.

A tangy finish with decent length rounds off a really well balanced effort.

Winemakers Description:

The Bacchus grape gives this wine a fragrant bouquet enhancing the lingering flavours of apricot and tropical fruits.
