Orpheus Bacchus 2018

Orpheus Bacchus 2018

*New vintage*
In Stock

One of our most talked about wines to date (and our best Orpheus Bacchus yet!) Made from our very best parcels of Bacchus grapes, a unique expression of Bacchus from some of our oldest vines. The Orpheus is a wine of great finesse, a limited range only made in selected years. A combination of whole bunch and de-stemmed fruit was pressed in an inert environment preserving the aroma and flavour pre cursors to create a concentrated well balanced expression of the Bacchus variety. This wine displays complex and well integrated flavours of elderflower and lychee with defined minerality and excellent persistent length and mouth watering finish.

Views from the experts:

'More intense than most. Very crisp and well formed.... Real edge and race to this, and even a bit of persistence'

Jancis Robinson - Favourite English Still Wines. One of only 9 wines chosen as Jancis Robinson’s favourite English white wines and the joint highest scoring Bacchus. 
 

‘White peach and lemon zest aroma’s lead into a plush, sweet peachy attack, both rich and fresh at the same time. The fruit volume has good density, with tense, primary, focused purity. All the best bits linger on the finish’

Sally Easton MW - Top 30 English Wines to Try - Decanter 92 Points (highest scoring Bacchus)


‘Bacchus is considered England’s signature white grape for still wines, and this one, lush and green and rounded, with breezy notes of elderflower and tart gooseberries, is a beauty.'

Victoria Moore - Wines of the Week -  Telegraph

Tasting Notes

The wine’s acidity, body and complexity lends itself extremely well to food pairing. Try with meaty fish or shellfish dishes, such as monkfish, crab or slow cooked pork belly.

Or why not try with our recipe for Scallops in a creamy Bacchus sauce with Parmesan-Roasted Cauliflower as recommended by our resident chef Aaron
