12/08/2019 – New Hall Vineyards, Bacchus 2018

(2019) From the oldest and largest Bacchus vineyard in England, vines dating back as far as 1977, this is super-fresh, partly due to obvious early-picking given it is more or less dry and only 10.5% alcohol. It's super-aromatic too, flitting around Sauvignon Blanc, Gavi di Gavi and Torrontes, but its own thing too with crunchy pear and citrus, and some nettle and floral notes. In the mouth a touch of spritz, then the sheer acidity drives this, delicate talcumy aromas and flavours persist, that clean, cool pear fruitiness, and zippy acidity to finish. A cracking summer in the garden contender this. £10.80 for Daily Drinker club members. Watch the video for more information.
