Really excellent example of English winemaking. The Bacchus from Chapel Down, often said to be England’s answer to Sauvignon Blanc, offers freshness, vibrant fruit flavours but never over powers.
Grapefruit and gooseberry are there, but are evenly matched with gentle flavours of melon with an elderflower and fresh leaf/grassy end note.
This wine stands well against NZ Sauvignon Blanc and is a firm favourite English white wine favourite of mine.
WOTM May 2019 A celebration of English Chardonnay purity, and it comes with such welcoming texture and complexity.
Baked apple pudding and ripe stone fruit flavours set the stage for an incredibly approachable Blanc de Blancs.
Both driving and giving, ending on a delicious honey roasted nut complexity that lingers elegantly on the finish.
This fine English Chardonnay straddles that fine line between textural oaky delight and precise, punchy fruit purity.
A really grown-up wine that is more Pouilly-Fumé in style than it is New World Sauvignon Blanc.
Fresh, clean and dry with flavours of crisp apple, lime and a twist of tropical fruit.
