Barrel Fermented Bacchus 2020 Hoffmann & Rathbone, Sussex
The colour is so pure and precise which harbours a pristine palate as bright as a diamond and the layers of deliciousness in this Sussex wine are simply thrilling. It’s a superbly bright tropical surge of mango, lime and peach with silky roundness and textural finesse.
