About the wine
Polgoon Bacchus White is from the tip of Cornwall and shows excellent character. To start with you get aromas of lime zest, grapefruit pith and cut grass. And then on tasting, you get flavours of elderflower and gooseberry along with other citrus fruit flavours. The grapes are hand-harvested and then the stems are removed before the wine is tank fermented. This wine is an absolute must for all English wine enthusiasts and anyone keen to try something new. This Bacchus is perfect with food.
About the winemaker
Polgoon is a true Cornish gem. The vineyard was set up in the early 2000s and they completed their first harvest in 2006. They are based just outside Penzance at the tip of Cornwall; if you’re down that way, you really should pop in and say hi! Their location gives them a special micro-climate that allows them to produce some excellent wines, including one of the best English reds we’ve tasted. Their wines have won multiple awards including the Waitrose Trophy for “Best Still Rosé in the UK”. They also have an orchard, where they grow apples and pears for making ciders and juices.
They are vegan certified by the vegetarian society.
