Mainly Chenin blanc in the blend with Rousanne, Viognier and Sémillon. Nose with limes, grapefruit, quince. Wide pallet with ripe fruit aromas and intense fraicheur. Owner Johnathan Grieve employs a 'posse' of ducks, which patrol the vineyard looking for and destroying snails, which eat the vines. The ducks are an eco-friendly way to avoid using harmful chemical poisons to kill pests.
Enjoy with salads, fine fish dishes or delightful as alternative for a Chardonnay as an aperitif.
