Bacchus Block 2017 Lyme Bay

Product Description

This 100% Bacchus wine was isolated for its intense and powerful grapefruit freshness, broad tropical-fruit notes and herbal undertones. (2017 - 11.5% abv)

These Bacchus Block grapes are from some very ripe fruit, which had a kiss of botrytis (noble rot). After crushing and destemming, the juice was left in contact with the skin before being gently pressed and cold settled for over 48 hours. The juice was then inoculated with a yeast strain, which helps reveal varietal aromas of citrus and tropical fruits. Once this fermentation was underway the wine was co-inoculated with a yeast strain, specifically selected for its ability to reveal aromas of box wood and herbs. 20% of the wine was fermented in old oak barriques, with the remainder in stainless steel tanks.

?This is a real powerhouse of a Bacchus. Intense & powerful citrus, rich green & tangy grapefruit notes. Bold & punchy!? John Mobbs, GreatBritishWine.com

?Fresh bubblegum nose with a whiff of snapped pea pods, and super freshness and precision on the palate. Light and elegant style, with crisp apple zing, soft sweet citrus notes & a pleasing herbal-mineral influence,? Decanter (92 points)
