WINE REVIEW

One of the most cost effective Bacchus’ on the market at £11.99, and the most widely available Bacchus on the market at this point.

On the nose, all the Bacchus aromatics you expect; lime zest, grapefruit and tropical fruit with hints of fresh grass.

High acidity and bold citrus flavours provides a punchy up front flavour profile. There’s quite a rich tropical fruit mid taste, though overall the finish a little short.

This is Chapel Down’s entry Bacchus and a rather good starting point for those new to the varietal, however their Bacchus Reserve (£13.99) and Tenterden Bacchus (£15.99) offer more complexity and texture.
