Lyme Bay is a small, dedicated West Country company passionate about producing delicious and award-winning English Wines, Fruit Wines, Ciders, Meads and Liqueurs from their home in Devon’s beautiful Axe Valley.
An intense, aromatic wine with tropicality, minerality, and characteristic English hedgerow. Made from 100% Bacchus grapes, best served lightly chilled.
A beautiful, long, hot summer in 2020 enabled the grapes to fully ripen on the vine, resulting in intensity of flavour and body.
The 2021 Bacchus blend included fruit from Essex, Kent, and Hereford. Extended skin contact was used on specific parcels to enhance phenolics, before each parcel was fermented in individual lots at temperatures ranging from 12°C to 17°C, with selected yeast strains. After racking, the wines were selected and blended, then left to rest on fine lees before final filtration and bottling in May 2021.
Clear, pale lemon / light straw in colour. A heady nose of elderflower with an abundance of citrus, green mango and
blackcurrant leaf. A fresh and zesty wine, with a balanced, rounded body. Crisp acidity adds excellent structure to the palate and lifts the light tropical and citrus character.
Perfect with Vegan ‘fish’ & chips and minted peas…
