New to the UK (We have the only stock retail) and new to the world, Bodegas Yuste is a project of some sensationally wealthy spaniards with a sherry habit. They’ve acquired some top quality old Bodegas and are rekindling them, bringing a new house back online. This has given them stocks of amazing mature wines, resulting in this Amontillado averaging 19 years of age in the bottle, with wines going back far older. Racey and fresh still, but with extremely concentrated flavours of spice, nuts and fresh toffee popcorn. Get down to this with some quality Iberico ham.
Rich nose yet with tension and minerals, savoury hints and aromas of peach pannacotta with herbal notes. The palate is rich with a creamy mouth feel, white stone fruit combines with minerals and fresh herbs. Dry finish with mineral acidity and powerful, persistent length.
The 2017 vintage has produced a delightfully fresh, well-balanced and smooth Bacchus. Calmer yet more complex on the nose than many vintages, our 2017 wine leads with herbal, tomato leaf and basil notes complimented by delightful tropical tones of papaya, mango and pineapple…with elderflower taking a less pronounced but vital supporting role. We delight in the way our Bacchus exposes so many new faces to us every year. As always, the palate is super-clean, refreshing and balanced….always leaving you wanting another sip!
