Chapel Down Bacchus Reserve 2013

Josh, head winemaker Chapel Down, describes this as his experimental wine, utilising partial wild fermentation & fermentation on gross lees.

Nice leafy nose with elderflower, lime zest, pineapple & cut grass. This wine has a gentle but subtle palate.

You could almost say it's too relaxed, but there are some interesting layers.

Initial bite of juicy green apples, then citrus and passion fruit leading to elderflower flavours. A dry fresh finish with long lasting lime peel flavours. Nice flavour evolution.
