Denbies continued investment into growing Sauvignon Blanc in England appears to be paying off. The 2014 vintage sees the Sauvignon content increased from 40% to 55%, with the remainder of the blend being Bacchus.
Two highly aromatic grapes combine here to provide an elegant but subtle bouquet of grapefruit and lime zest with strong green grassy notes. Herbaceous and floral with perhaps some hints of minerality.
The palate is dry and lightly textured from the merest kiss of oak (the Sauvignon spent two weeks in French oak). Acidity is mild but prominent, countering the more tropical fruit hue that the Bacchus imparts.
Floral finish with lemon zest & grapefruit tang, this is a very refreshing and delicately nuanced blend.
Cherry and ripe raspberry flavours, backed by dark chocolate and a crushed peppery spice.
WOTM July 2019 A curious fusion of ripe peach, hints of lightly grilled tropical fruit, with a twist of lime & smoky notes.
A fusion of pear, elderflower, zesty lime and gooseberry, with a softer, riper mix of light peach and honeydew melon.
A punchy palate, packed full of zingy citrus fruit, with papaya and guava tropics.
Probably the best mainstream own-label English wine on the market right now.
Delicate, charms are echoed by beautiful aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry and cherry blossom.
