Camel Valley, Bacchus Dry

£15.00

Description

After Bob Lindo let the RAF and decided to plant 8,000 vines in 1989, little did he know how successful his startup would become. There have been numerous medals through the years, capped by a gold at the 2009 Decanter awards for their still Bacchus. Bob’s son Sam won the English wine producer’s trophy as well as the same year and a year later in 2010, they beat champagne houses Bollinger and Roederer to the title of Best International Traditional Method Sparkling Wine at the World Sparkling Wine Championships. The vineyard has now received Sustainable Wines of Great Britain (SWGB) certification – one of only 12 in the UK and the only one in Cornwall. They also became the first English wine producer to be granted a royal warrant in 2018.

This is a fresh & fruity dry white wine, bright with a grassy hue, England’s answer to Sancerre. Good varietal character & length with crisp, tangy elderflower & grapefruit flavours. The grapes were crushed and pressed and the juice cooled to 4C to retain the special fruit character, then fermented in stainless steel tanks at no more than 13C.
