Astley Vineyard Bacchus 2016

Astley Bacchus is delightful tasted on its own, but pairs beautifully with asparagus, goat’s cheese and even spicy dishes as the acidity and top floral notes balance and complement the heat of the spice.

Established in 2007 in West Sussex, Stopham Estate is owned by Simon Woodhead, a former engineer who designed parts for Formula One racing cars. Six hectares are planted with predominantly Pinot Gris and Bacchus with Stopham’s main focus producing the highest quality still wine.

Stopham Estate Pinot Gris 2015 is made from 85% Pinot Gris and 15% Bacchus. The use of special ‘Stelvin’ screwcaps enables the wine to remain super zingy and fresh, preserving the incredible purity of fruit.
