The 2021 Bacchus blend included fruit from Essex, Kent, and Hereford. Each parcel of fruit was fermented in individual lots at temperatures ranging from 12°C to 17°C, with specially selected yeast strains to help enhance the house style of Bacchus. After racking, the wines were selected and blended, then left to rest on fine lees before final filtration and bottling in May 2022.
