Wareside Wines Bacchus 2010
Recently I had the good fortune to chat with David Briscoe, founder of the fledgling Wareside Wines in Hertfordshire. He sent me his 2010 Bacchus – that all-important "second vintage" which, considering it's coming from such young vines, shows some good promise.
Not overly complex, it is water-white in the glass, with classic elderflower blossom aromas and musky hints. On the palate it's light to medium, with a clean crisp finish.
Enjoy on its own or with light white meat, fish dishes and fresh spring salads.
