    Chapel Down

    I feel very fortunate to be a winemaker in England. The industry here is still in its infancy compared to other more established regions and so with every vintage we discover more about our terroir. Josh Donaghay-Spire - Winemaker

    When Josh first started studying wine at the WSET he was amazed by the amount of complex chemistry behind it.

    The more he learnt, the more he realised how much he didn't know. He found it very inspiring and his thirst for knowledge grew as he was getting further into his studies.

    As a winemaker, he believes it is fundamental to understand vineyards and the chemistry of fruit and wines.

    Freshness and vibrancy are key features he looks for in wines and Josh finds that English fruit really delivers on this, whether it be unique aromatic white wines, classic fizz, or a twist on a rich Chablis-esque Chardonnay.

    Chapel Down Bacchus tasting note

    In this wine there are intense aromas of tropical fruit; pineapple, lime and hints of green pepper. Attractive herbaceous characters on the palate and a crisp refreshing finish.

    An ideal alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.

    Great for enjoying on its own or with seafood dishes or Thai cuisine.
