A lovely English dry white wine made from the Bacchus grape variety. The nose has fresh aromas of hedgerows, green apples and citrus fruits. The palate is crisp with a subtle floral character and a crisp, slightly smokey mineral note. Very clean on the finish with a grapefruit acidity.
Bacchus (86%)/ Chardonnay (14%). 12.5% ABV.
Established in 1989 in the heart of the Cornish countryside by ex-RAF pilot Bob Lindo and his wife Annie. Bob embarked as winemaker at Camel Valley and in 2005 won the International Wine Challenge Gold Medal for their Sparkling wine. Their son Sam then took over as winemaker (with a little help from Dad now and again) and in 2007 won UK Winemaker of the Year.
Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail Weekend: "THE UK's NUMBER ONE ESTATE, every wine from Camel Valley is a joy and I have picked out my favourite dry white wine, made from the accurately named Bacchus grape, for you to savour. For the umpteenth year in a row, this is my favourite dry white English wine. It's world class. Get in quick, this citrus-soaked beauty always sells out fast''
