Bacchus - white wine grown on English vineyardDeveloped in Germany in 1972, the Bacchus grape is a cross of Sylvaner X Riesling with Muller Thurgau.

Ripening in October, it produces a wine with a flowery bouquet suggestive of elderflowers.

It is very fruity in a Sauvignon Blanc style. It matures well in a bottle, when it develops tropical fruit flavours.

It is planted widely in the United Kingdom.
