This 100% Bacchus wine has been isolated for its intense and powerful grapefruit freshness, broad tropical-fruit notes and herbal undertones.
The Bacchus Block grapes are picked from some very ripe fruit, which had a kiss of botrytis (noble rot). After crushing and destemming, the juice is left in contact with the skin before being gently pressed and clarified by flotation to allow a rapid inoculation to maintain maximum flavours found in the grapes.
The juice was then inoculated with a yeast strain, which helps reveal the varietal aromas of citrus and tropical fruits.
After fermentation the wine was rested for four months before being bottled early to maintain the powerful freshness.
Under the expert guidance of head winemaker Liam, this wine has picked up some serious awards, holding its own against the rest of the winemaking world.
Nose: Clean, intense and powerful grapefruit freshness, broad tropical-fruit notes and herbal undertones.
Palate: A long, citrus-dominated finish with a good mouth and great length.
75cl 11.5% ABV
For bottles with corks, be sure to store your wine horizontally in a wine rack. Keeping wine on its side helps keep the cork moist, which is key for long-term storage, as a dried out cork can cause seepage and premature aging.
While it’s not necessary to keep screw top wine bottles on their sides, horizontal storage is nevertheless an efficient way to store your wines for maximum space and easy access.
