From the small Dog-Leg plot at Great Whitman’s Vineyard, this 100% Bacchus
wine was isolated for its intense and powerful grapefruit freshness, broad
tropical-fruit notes and herbal undertones.
WINEMAKING NOTES
When deciding when to pick our Bacchus grapes we either aim to pick them
before the grapes are considered ripe, or once the grapes are considered
overripe. These Bacchus Block grapes are from some very ripe fruit, which had
a kiss of botrytis (noble rot). After crushing and destemming, the juice was left
in contact with the skin before being gently pressed and clarified by flotation to
allow a rapid inoculation to maintain maximum flavours found in the grapes.
The juice was then inoculated with a T. delbrueckii yeast strain, which helps
reveal thiol-type varietal aromas of citrus and tropical fruits. Once this
fermentation was underway the wine was co-inoculated with a S.cerevisiae
yeast strain, specifically selected for its ability to reveal a thiol which has
aromas of box wood and herbs. After fermentation the wine was rested on
lees for four months before been bottled early to maintain the powerful

freshness
