Baccchus Frizzante 2018
As England’s first Frizzante, this is a delightfully new and light-hearted way to enjoy our ever-popular Bacchus wine. Produced via tank fermentation, this lightly sparkling style fills the mouth with a gentle creamy effervescence that beautifully compliments the elegance and crisp freshness of the wine. The addition of only a small amount of sugar for the second fermentation in tank delivers the ‘lighter fizz’ and at just 2 bar pressure allows us to bottle under screw cap. The ‘tank method’, without the prolonged lees contact ageing of our traditional bottle fermented sparkling wines, also lends itself to creating this lighter, fresher fruit focussed style of wine.
The beautiful image of a murmuration of starlings over the iconic West Pier in Brighton was drawn for us by tattoo artist, Jo Chastney.
Serve: On its own, ideal as an aperitif with nuts, olives or cheese; lightly spiced lean cured meat (like bresaola),parmiggiano with rocket, grilled or steamed salty vegetables such as: broccoli tender stems, asparagus, mushrooms and various kinds of pasta.
Or try a Frizzante Cocktail – a dash of Elderflower cordial, topped with Frizzante…delicious
