Hawkswood, Thurston Place, Bacchus, Suffolk, England, 2020Regular price £17.50
The 2020 Bacchus is the first under the new Hawkswood brand by Michael and Irene Rhodes of Thurston Place Winery. Not only is this the best Bacchus they have produced so far, it's the best Bacchus we have tasted at Vino Gusto. The wine is racy, crisp and fresh as you would expect of the grape. But the soft, rounded tropical fruit flavours and low alcohol make for a very drinkable wine. You'll need more than one in the fridge, trust us. It's certainly what we'll be drinking this summer.
At Vino Gusto, we love selling local products, but the mere fact that they're local is secondary to quality when it comes to sourcing and buying outstanding wine. The winery at Thurston Place is just a few miles from our doorstep and Michael and Irene Rhodes strive to produce technically sound wines that they enjoy drinking themselves. Luckily for us, they're bloody good at it.
