Aldwick English Bacchus 2018, England
Melon and apple with a whiff of white blossom. Not a far cry from Sauvignon Blanc and perfect summer drinking.
Bacchus, which has quickly become England's signature white grape variety, takes its name from the Greco-Roman god of wine. It flourishes in the cool climate of England's rolling hills. At Aldwick Estate the Bacchus vines are planted on the top of the hill, overlooking the descent to the River Yeo and the Mendips hills beyond. It's a vibrant, herbaceous dry white wine that's soft on the palate and intensely satisfying.
You'll like this if you like... Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, dry white wines, fresh lemon citrus or sunshine drinking.
Pairs beautifully with: Quiche, simply grilled white fish or salmon and cucumber sandwiches (when the sun's shining).
Cheese pairing: White Nancy goat's cheese or a goat's cheese Brie.
