Camel Valley Bacchus 2013

With a nose of limes and citrus, this is a very enjoyable, refreshing white wine – a great choice for Sauvignon Blanc regulars.

While a little more at the premium end of white wines (£12.49 from 12 local Waitrose branches in the South West, or direct from the Camel Valley estate, Jan 2015), if you’re used to drinking Marlborough or French Sauvignon Blancs, this might be an interesting alternative next time you’re out buying wine.

While making the most of all the acidity and zestfull beauty that world class Sauvignon Blancs manage, it also has a more delicate texture – it’s this feel in the mouth that makes it particularly interesting to try.

 

Serve with…

…seafood. Especially octopus or salty squid. The acidity and citrus, balanced by a green-ripe flavour, make the match mouth-watering.
