Tasting Notes

Chapel Down Bacchus is a consistently delicious Sauvignon Blanc-like, delicate dry white. A refreshingly aromatic dry white wine characterised by elderflower, grapefruit and melon aromas. These follow through into the flavours of citrus and light tropical fruit together with an expressive zesty, long finish.

A refreshing and generous white from the delightful 2022 vintage. It’s like a cross between a high class Sauvignon Blanc and a top Verdejo from Rueda (Spain) (a great accolade from us!).

The quality of the fruit together with the expertise of the wine making team can be discovered in Chapel Down Bacchus and, despite having just 12% abv, the flavours go on and on!

About the Producer

Chapel Down’s talented head wine-maker, Josh Donaghay-Spire uses the respected whole-bunch pressing method with this wine, which retains its aromatic purity. It spends six months on its lees in tank before bottling in April 2023.

Bacchus is one of the most successful grapes grown for English still wines and is often referred to the Sauvignon Blanc of England! If you enjoy good Marlborough Sauvignon or full-flavoured Sancerre, you should try this! Lovely now, this wine will develop its complexity. Made from grapes grown in Chapel Down vineyards in Kent, Sussex and Essex.

Food Match:  Perfect with goats cheese, salads, seafood or Thai dishes.

“From England’s fourth most planted grape variety, this is a great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc. It displays green apple, gooseberry and freshly cut grass. It is light, crisp and fresh with a tangy edge and some elderflower notes on the finish.”   Decanter Tasting Panel
