Chapel Down Bacchus 2011

Member Review by Lindy Hemsley:

Lime blossom nose. Off-dry palate of Rose's lime cordial. Seemed very thin in the mouth and not enough acid to balance sweetness.

A Gold Medal at the 2004 International Wine Challenge and UK Winemaker of the Year in 2002, 2003 and 2005, proves their obsession with quality is paying dividends. Vintage: 2009 Grapes: Bacchus Winemaking: Bacchus is a grape that needs to be picked before becoming over-ripe to retain its intense and distinctive grapy flavours. After fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats at 12 - 18 degrees, the wine was left on its lees for 3 months for body and to retain the primary fruit aromas. Serve: Chilled, great with delicately flavoured fish or seafood dishes. Taste: Lime, apples and nettles on the nose. The palate is alive with Lemon and Lime acidity and an attractive, flinty minerally character
