The English Winemaker producer page

Bacchus was carbonically macerated separately for 10 days. It then pressed in a traditional basket press and alcoholic fermentation happened in glass demijohns. Fermentation was kick started by the addition of a Pied de Cuve culture that we started in the vineyard 10 days previously. Some of its reserved juice was returned to the wine just prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without being fined or filtered and no additions were made (no added sulphur).
The carbonic fruit underscores the English countryside in Spring essence that Bacchus does so well, obvious elderflower is backed up by apple blossom and hawthorn flower.
