Bacchus was created in 1933 by Peter Morio at the Geilweilerhof Institute of grape breeding in Germany by crossing Silvaner x Riesling with Muller-Thurgau. It was then later released for general cultivation in 1972.
According to Decanter magazine, Bacchus is the ‘poster grape’ of English wine. Oz Clarke says of Bacchus “...This is about the closest England can come to the herbal pungency of Sauvignon Blanc...”, adding that it has “...aromas of hedgerow, elderflower and pear...” Decanter’s tasting director Christelle Guibert has found English Bacchus to have “...a delightfully perfumed nose with notes of crisp apple and honeysuckle, underpinned by a spine of acidity...”
Pinot Noir rosé 2019
100% Pinot Noir
A crisp and dry, beautifully pale pink Provencal style rosé. Aromas of strawberry, cranberry and redcurrants on the nose. Layers of red fruits on the palate with a glorious creamy textured finish. English summer in a bottle.
Pinot Noir is grown around the world, particularly the New World of California, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, but its origins and soul lies in the Burgundy region of France. It is also one of the key varietals used in the production of Champagne.
Joel Fleischman of Vanity Fair described Pinot Noir as “...The most romantic of wines, with so voluptuous a perfume, so sweet an edge and so powerful a punch...” English Pinot Noirs have been described as “...Tangy, summery, red fruits with a softly floral edge...” and “...clearly defined redcurrant and raspberry fruits, set off by an appealing smokiness...”
A fresh and fruity light bodied red wine with exquisite aromas of black cherry and blackcurrant, plus a hint of coffee on the nose. Earthy tones on the palate with nicely balanced acidity, low tannins and a very smooth finish. Easy drinking anytime.
Regent (correctly pronounced “Ray-Gent”) is an inter-specific hybrid grape, made up of both the European Vitis vinifera species and American vine species. It was created in 1967 by Prof Gerhardt Alleweldt at the Geilweilerhof Institute by crossing Diana (Silvaner x Muller-Thurgau) with the interspecific hybrid Chambourcin. It was then released for cultivation in 1996. It is a cool weather red wine grape, highly resistant to fungal diseases.
