The grape varieties used to make this Bacchus wine were harvested by hand, then whole barrel pressed and then aged in French oak barrels for 9 months in order to add richness and complexity to this wine.

Josh Donaghay-Spire, head winemaker at Swann"s Chapel Wines in England, said: "I have a soft spot for the Bacchus grape variety, which is suitable for planting in English vineyards.

The Bacchus wine is currently available in major supermarkets and wine stores in the UK at an RRP of £25 per bottle and is said to pair well with crab, risotto and lightly baked fish.
