Bolney Estate Lychgate Bacchus, Sussex, England, 2021
Grape: Bacchus, sustainably farmed, grapes from the Foxhole vineyard
Lovely jasmine, elderflower and ripe grapefruit notes are at the forefront of this wine, followed by hints of nettle and freshly cut grass. A classic example of a Bacchus, this wine is easy drinking and a firm favourite.
Bolney’s story began in 1972 when owners and founders, Janet and Rodney Pratt planted three acres of vines to create what was then only the sixth commercial vineyard in England. Sam Linter, Rodney and Janet’s daughter, took over the reins in the mid -1990s. Under Sam’s leadership, winemakers Cara Lee Dely and Tom Sutton combine their knowledge and expertise to create award-winning wines.
Bolney Wine Estate is located on the edge of the South Downs, about 14 miles from the UK’s south coast, and comprises five unique Sussex vineyard sites. The vines were re-planted over a period of time from 2002 to 2012, being replaced when they reach 35-40 years of age. One vine produces enough grapes for 1-3 bottles of wine.
Drink, as an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc, with: Scallops & pea puree • Steamed sea bass & lemongrass • Pad Thai
