The Nutbourne Vineyards Bacchus is produced by the adventurous Bridget Gladwin back in 1991. Since then she has grown the Nutbourne brand to having several still and a handful of sparkling wines.
The “Terroir” at Nutbourne is a unique and ideal wine growing environment – a warm microclimate protected by the South Downs, gentle south-facing slopes and the same fertile greensand soil as the Champagne region in France. There are 26 acres (and growing) under vine.
The Vineyard is considered one of the premier wine producers in the South East, offering a range of estate grown still and sparkling wines which are highly competitive worldwide.
The Nutbourne Vineyards Bacchus is classically Bacchus on the nose, this is rich on the elderflower, citrus and gooseberry notes. Greener hints of nettle and tomato stem. Lemon and lime on the palate with acidity to match. Then a fruity mix transitioning from sharp grapefruit through to smoother elderflower notes.
