A blend of 40% Clairette, 30% Bourboulenc, 20% Grenache Blanc and 10% Ugni Blanc. Bright straw colour with a watery hue. Nosing draws out aromas of pear, baked apple and subtle honeysuckle notes followed by a faint whiff of cinnamon. Nicely rounded the palate features pear and baked apple flavours over traces of wet stone and cinnamon. Finishes dry with a lick of fresh acidity and an elegant, delicately fleshed conclusion.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
Alc. 12.5%

Other Reviews…..
Self-confidently funky, full-bodied dry white that might remind some of high-end sauvignon blanc or others of dry riesling. Concentrated and well structured, this has plenty of drive, though not that much fruit. Long, crisp finish with plenty of spring-meadow character. Drink or hold.
