Product Details

Tasting Notes

This is a really lovely - and slightly unusual - blend of the Gros Manseng and Sauvignon Blanc grapes, selected from vineyards in Gascogny, France.

It works brilliantly, with gorgeous lemon and grapefruit flavours; fantastically fresh too.

Lovely pre-food drink or match with simple tomato salads or chicken dishes.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2014 vintage, Susy Atkins said: “A blend of crisp, citrussy Sauvignon Blanc with softer local grape, Gros Manseng, to make a refreshing, fruity and well-balanced dry white, not sour in the least, but versatile and easy-drinking.”

Susy Atkins - Stella Magazine, Sunday Telegraph  16/08/2015

Of the 2014 vintage, David Williams said: “If there were any sense to wine fashion, the eclectic collection of white grape varieties planted in south-west France would be far better known. I’ve’ never understood why more growers haven’t taken to gros manseng, the senior partner in this brilliant blend from Gascony, in the way they have to the supporting player, sauvignon blanc. Maybe it’s just too distinctive, with its ability to summon up mango and pineapple, cut with pink grapefruit. Or maybe it’s the name. Either way, its lack of renown makes for a bargain with the sauvignon adding its usual leafy lift.”

David Williams - The Observer Magazine 16/08/2015
