The only white wine made by famous Spanish winemaker Alvaro Palacios at his family’s Rioja property, Plácet is made in very limited quantities from the indigenous Spanish grape variety, Viura, grown on the estate. Plácet is a captivating wine that is light gold in color with aromas of honeysuckle, almonds, and fresh orchard fruit. On the palate the wine is both voluptuous and vibrant with good acidity and a long finish that has hints of fresh apricots, soft minerals and lightly toasted oak.
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!
