Best still Bac­chus

Lyme Bay Bac­chus Block 2015

Country Life Every Week - - Out & About: Chelsea Flower Show 2017 -

‘Packed with zesty lime, fen­nel and el­der­flower flavours, this is English Bac­chus at its re­fresh­ing best’

Based in Devon’s beau­ti­ful Axe Val­ley, Lyme Bay Win­ery pro­duces award-win­ning still and sparkling wines. Head wine­maker Liam Idzikowski’s phi­los­o­phy is to source the best grapes in the coun­try and make the most out­stand­ing, com­plex and char­ac­ter­ful English wines. Rather like a Cham­pagne house, he se­lects top-qual­ity grapes from di­verse UK mi­cro­cli­mates. The Bac­chus Block orig­i­nates from the small dog-leg spot at Great Whit­man’s Vine­yard in Es­sex, a well-shel­tered plot sur­rounded by forests. The re­sult­ing grapes have huge depth of char­ac­ter.
