The aromas on this wine were much more floral focussed; loads of elderlower, with cut grass, hedgerow, hints of white pepper, pine needle and an underlying salinity.
This wine’s diversity continued on the palate, with the Bacchus’ signature acidity and citrus flavours taking hold initially, before a layered and textured journey unfolds.
There’s a real youthful green character to this wine; grassy, unripe papaya and lime. Salty salinity, mineral finish – nuanced, textured, wonderful!
A serious wine lovers wine for sure; distinctive and hugely interesting.
Brisk, bold but subtly tempered acidity integrates nicely with rich peachy and apricot flavours.
Notes of thyme and sage add a savoury component that would pair well with many summer dishes.
A very pure, dry expression of Bacchus but with the added lift of the light bubbles.
Impressive length with profound yeasty complexity on the finish.
A fun, fruity and playful wine with an underlying red berry fruit purity that remains firmly true to Albourne Estate's established stylistic expression.
A delicious first ever sparkling wine from Alison Nightingale's Albourne Estate.
