Vibrant ruby hues gleam out of the glass. The first notes on the nose are of crushed blueberries which then develop on to reveal an intriguing bitter-sweet character of crème de cassis with a touch of underlying parma violets. Fine red-fruits fill the mouth; cranberries and a touch of cocoa nib on the lifted finish.
An intriguing combination of one of Italy's most successful grape varieties, Pinot Grigio, and one of their lesser known gems from the island of Sicily, Catarratto. Sweet ripe fruit flavours, citrus and golden plum, are combined with the natural spice of the Catarratto.
Who would have thought that Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc would make such good bedfellows? Anyone who has tried this wine, that's who. It turns out that the peachy stone fruit flavours of the Viognier are the perfect complement to zesty gooseberry Sauvignon flavours.Domaine de la Bastide
