Bacchus is arguably the Flagship grape for English still wines. Whilst it has Riesling in its lineage, most would say Bacchus expresses itself more similarly to Sauvignon Blanc, but with its own unique qualities. Thanks to England's cool maritime climate and long growing season, Lyme Bay's Bacchus shows fresh and bright acidity with a complex and pronounced delivery of grapefuit, cut-grass, elderflower and gooseberry flavours.

Winemaking

After crushing and destemming, the segregated juices were cold settled for 48 hours before been inoculated with four specially selected yeast strains to maximise the varietal character. Following fermentation, the wine was gently racked, then left to age for four months on fine lees to improve structure and mouth-feel, before being bottled at the end of February. We then allow the wine to settle and develop in-bottle for several months, before release.
