An interesting blenc of Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc, the Italian Vermentino and Ugni Blanc. With a little oak fermentation it all comes together nicely. Apricot, unripe pineapple, red apple and a bit of smoke on the nose with a smooth texture and a hint of buttery, nutmeg, apple pie on the palate. There's a touch of balancing acidity to keep everything in check. For the price this is a great deal.

Very open, tropical aromas. The palate shows mild notes of citrus and pineapple, with an odd nutty flavour and a slightly bitter finish. Decent value for current drinking.
