Benchy View White - Reichensteiner - Bacchus, Dorset, England
The Somerset Wine Co
A lovely local find - the vineyard being located just 5 miles away at Sandford Orcas just over the Somerset border into Dorset.
A blend of the German grape varieties Reichensteiner (2/3) and Bacchus (1/3) this is dry, zesty, lively white wine with good richness on palate of baked lemons and that classic hint of English hedgerow - hawthorn, a hint of elderflower with good acidity on the finish. 2018 was a great vintage for English wines as we had so much sunshine, ideal conditions for full ripening. Perfect with seafood and summer salads, like an English Picpoul!
