Bolney Wine Estate Lychgate Bacchus West Sussex 2020

Delicate aromas of elderflower, gooseberry and English
hedgerow characters lead to a beautifully balanced
palate with a long finish that draws out sweet pineapple
and grapefruit.


Producer Note
The Bolney Wine Estate's story began when founders Rodney and Janet Pratt
planted three acres of vines, five decades ago, to create what was then one of the
very first commercial vineyards in England. In the 1990s, Sam Linter, their daughter,
joined them and grew the vineyard’s acreage and the quality of the wines. Sam
continues to run the operation as Managing Director and Head Winemaker.
Winemakers Liz Morgan and Alex Rabagliati produce elegant, artisanal wines, which
beautifully showcase the Sussex terroir. In 2017 they were awarded the prestigious
accolade of 'UK Winery of the Year' at the UK Wine Awards.


Vineyard
The site is 15 miles from the south coast in the heart of West Sussex, with views of the
South Downs. The vines are planted on gentle slopes of sandstone, which aids
drainage and provides good mineral pick up for the two vineyard sites of Foxhole
and Pookchurch. The vines are trained with high Sylvos trellising. The shoots grow
downwards and the fruiting zones are high in order to reduce predation by Roe
Deer. This trellising method also allows breezes to enter the canopy, reducing
humidity inside the canopy, which helps to fight against mildew.


Winemaking
The hand-picked Bacchus was whole bunch pressed. Cool fermentation took place
with carefully selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks to ensure the retention of the
primary fruit aromas. Fermentation lasted approximately 14 days and the wine was
made in an unoaked style.
