An ultra traditional style of Manzanilla. Now heading north to Sanlucar De Barrameda where again cooler temperatures play an important role. The vineyards of Sanlucar produce wines far lighter than those inland. The wine is aged for 8 years, towards the end of which is begins to become what we call a Manzanilla Pasada, it begins to oxidise and turn into an Amontillado. This gives a nutty, spiced character and massive intensity. One of the most distinct Manzanilla
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!
