Wine Tasting Note: Chapel Down Bacchus Reserve, 2003, England.
Available from English Wines Group for £9.99.
That’s passion fruit that is! ep on the palate mingling with a distinctly Sauvignon Blanc style the flavours are overwhelmingly of Passion Fruit. There is a little spritz and maybe a touch of sweetness, medium in body and a touch of white blossom and gooseberry; but over-all it is passion fruit flavours that dominate. All in all rather nice.
Scribblings Rating – 90/100
This particular bottling is a selected tank of high quality fruit, as such it is not produced every year. Even in early 2006 this vintage is still fresh and vibrant.
