Penn Croft Bacchus 2021

Can you bottle the shimmering, lazy delight of a late summer’s day spent in an English garden? Our 2021 Bacchus answers that with an emphatic yes.

Tasting notes

Our 2021 Bacchus is subtle yet layered with flavour. Driven by its mineral backbone, the nose carries aromas of wet stone, melon flesh and white peach skin. A great texture on the palate provides a broad mouthfeel and balance – resolving finally into a focused, bone dry finish.

The method
Our winemaking embraces purity, texture and balance. A detailed, small batch, low intervention approach allows the fruit to shine through.

"Made at contract winery Itasca by Ben Smith, who was responsible for making my highest scoring English wine of all time (2018 Oxney Chardonnay), I have no problem declaring that this is the UK’s finest Pinot Blanc to date.

The fruit comes from the Missing Gate Vineyard in Essex, where it was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed into third fill Burgundy barrels. I was lucky enough to taste a bottle late last year, and it is as lively and energetic as any white wine you will taste.

A low sulphur regime and minimal fining have left the beautiful fruit to romance your senses. This is a truly brilliant wine with sensational depth, complexity and length. It is not slippery and smooth like an Alsatian PB, but grainy, combative and textural like an epic Chablis. It is nothing short of stunning, and it is certainly the epitome of brave winemaking."
