Kit’s Coty 2016 Bacchus

English wine producer Chapel Down has released a single-vineyard 2016 Bacchus from its Kit’s Coty Estate in Kent. Grapes were harvested by hand in late September and then whole-bunch-pressed before undergoing wild fermentation in third- and fourth-use French oak barrels for nine months to add richness and complexity to the wine.

Josh Donaghay-Spire, Chapel Down’s head winemaker, said: “This very ripe style of Bacchus has guava, melon and peach aromas with oak influence. The palate is pure and focused with more tropical flavours and an exceptional length.”

RRP: £25.
