So what’s in the case?
Tuffon Hall Amelie
Firstly, the Tuffon Hall Amelie offers aromas of traditional gooseberry and honeysuckle that are common to Bacchus, but also enticing riper aromas of peach and pear that are rarely found in English wines. On the palate is juicy fresh apple and melon. As always this is a wine that can be thoroughly enjoyed on its own, but also pairs well with a mixed barbecue, summery salads, local asparagus, pan-fried whitefish or a plate of Mersea oysters.
Giffords Hall Rose
Secondly, the Giffords Hall Rose has distinct aroma of roses, white peach and wild strawberry notes. The palate is fresh with red berry flavours and a touch of pink grapefruit. Giffords Hall Rose is delightful as an aperitif but also a wonderful accompaniment to fish dishes.
Saffron Grange Sparkling Rosé
Thirdly, the Saffron Grange Sparkling Rosé, which is a gorgeous salmon pink colour. This wine is bursting with fragrant lychee and rose petals on the nose. The palate is abundant with redcurrants and summer fruits balanced with a crisp, refreshing acidity. Undoubtedly, a fabulously moreish wine!
The Winbirri Signature is bursting with rich plum and dark-berry fruits; spicy with notes of coffee and blackberries. Plum and vanilla come through beautifully on the palate. An excellent accompaniment to cheese.
Bardfield Anne of Cleves
The Bardfield Anne of Cleves is a fabulous example of a Bacchus with round fruit flavours. Soft and refreshing with delicate pear on the palate. Easy drinking and delicious on its own, or with food. For example, with a summer BBQ.
Toppesfield Bacchus Reserve
Finally, the Toppesfield Bacchus Reserve has flavours of gooseberry, nettle and elderflower. It has a refreshing finish and excellent length. Toppesfield Bacchus Reserve pairs very well with seafood, especially shellfish, and fresh summer salads.
