Made from Rolle (Vermentino), Clairette, and Ugni Blanc. The wine is manual harvest and fermented with indigenous yeast, spending 5 months on its lees before bottling in the spring. All very normal, but the wine ends up being something quite extraordinary. Full, powerful with intense bitter yellow fruit, white currant, and subtle background note of salted almonds.

Provence

Provence is perhaps the most picturesque of France's wine regions with azure coasts and lavender fields. There has been a tsunami of rosé flooding our shores from this region, some of it of questionable quality, but in the majority the wines are extremely likeable and in some instances, outstanding.

We are particularly fond of Domaine des Mapliers for their sophisticated and gastronomic style, but who can forget Chateau d'Esclans for their Whispering Angel which is nothing short of a phenomenon. The very best examples in our opinion come from the world class estate of Domaine Tempier producing outstanding wines in all three colours.
