Whilst Loureiro is one of the main, and best, grapes used to make Vinho Verde it hasn't achieved quite the fame that Alvarinho has yet but it well worth trying. Alongside bright grapefruit notes, with hints of white blossom, there's a minerality that adds a richness and lovely weight on the palate. Very clean, fresh and moreish.
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
