The Bacchus 2021 is bright and fresh on the nose and jumps out of the glass with sherberty elderflower aromas. There is lime peel, cut grass and lavender in there too which reflect the detailed blending and multiple winemaking techniques that have been carefully applied to produce this wine. The pallet is crisp but not too acidic with a lovely balance of sweetness from a small amount of residual sugar and the natural flavours of the grape variety. It has the signature texture that Flint Bacchus usually displays, which comes partly from a small amount of the wine being aged in neutral oak.
This wine can be drunk now and enjoyed on a hot Summer’s day or paired with foods such as chalky cheeses, seafood (fish and chips works well!) and asparagus.
Flint winemaker Ben Witchell likes to extract as much complexity and flavour from the Bacchus grape as possible. He does this by picking fruit from different vineyards at different times and handling the individual lots of grapes according to their ripeness levels. Blended across over 8 individual components resulting in a layered example of Bacchus.
