My second wine from Albourne Estate, this time in the form of a blend of Pinot Blanc 53%, Pinot Gris 37% and Bacchus 10%.
Highly aromatic nose, pear, lemon and tropics with floral notes – very English and slightly reminiscent of pear drop sweets.
The palate is really nice and crisp; bright fresh acidity with lemon, lime zest, gooseberry and then a slightly fuller rounded fruit mix of pear and tropical fruits.
Perfect summer drinking English wine, but I think the Bacchus from Albourne is a step up in intensity.
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.
Almost rosé in colour, this is a lively White Pinot with lots of red berry character.
