A French white wine blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Rolle (previously called Vermentino, but the Italian have claimed it as there own and French wine makers can no longer use that name). This has interwoven flavours which create a characterful wine which is a real delight to drink.
Both the Sauvignon Blanc vines and the Rolle vines are planted on plots with ideal drainage conditions, on a mixture of silt, sand and alluvial deposit. The Sauvignon was harvested in late August, and the Rolle from mid-September.
This care and attention has prodcued a French white wine which is a deliciously refreshing change from straight Sauvignon Blanc.
This wine takes the zesty grapefruit characters of Sauvignon Blanc and complements it with the rounded texture of Rolle.
It is a wonderful all-rounder, perfect to drink with food or by itself! It is especially good though with stir fried vegetables (particularly broccoli), vegetable pakora or a Thai green curry.
