Dillions Bacchus 2020 – English White Wine

Sold by: Buy Britain Wines

£18.00

This wine has a wonderfully delicate floral, citrus and green apple scent which follows through on the fresh, well-balanced palate. There is a sense of harmony and grace with this wine which makes it a superb aperitif and a super partner for light salads or more nuanced Thai fish dishes.

Description

The Dillions 25 acre estate lies in the western half of the High Weald and was planted with vines in 2019. You will find the traditional Champagne grapes, Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay, alongside Bacchus on the south-west facing slopes of the vineyard. The south west aspect may mean that the vines are not warmed early in the morning but they will bask in the evening sun so keep on growing and developing their sugars and flavours. The estate is owned and run by the Trott family and the vineyard managed by Ed Evans, who has viticultural experience from his times in Alsace and New Zealand; superb places to learn about cool climate grape growing.

We first tasted the Dillion’s wines when we were sent a sample of the 2019 but by the time we wanted to offer it they had sold every last bottle. This year we managed to reserve a few cases early on and believe that it is one of the most elegant Bacchus wines you will find.

You will have noticed the vines were planted in 2019 so the fruit has come from a different source. Unfortunately, the actual grower has remained unnamed, despite our frequent request for information, but we are told is local, very local. We do know that the wine was made by Defined Wine, who have, in a short space of time, achieved a great reputation for quality wines and an ability to reflect the expression of the terroir and style requested by the owner.
It has to be said that the Dillions 2020 is a touch more serious than its debut wine. This is because the 2020 grapes were slightly riper, so creating a wine with greater body and 30% of the wine was put in new French oak barrels for six weeks. This gives the wine more depth and texture, but not enough to add any oak flavours. We look forward to tasting more wines from Dillions.
