SPECIAL MONEY WEEK WINE CLUB PRICE FOR MARCH ONLY 'Initially, I loved the quirky flavours brought about by this Vermentino/ Macabeu blend and so I made my notes and then cracked on with another wine. Its allure stuck in the back of my mind and so, curious about the evolving flavours, I went back to it just as my wife was serving up a Thai green chicken curry for dinner. We both tasted it with her creation – it was sublime. So while this is a silky, seashell, lime and mint-imbued beauty, it turns into a shimmering diva with complicated flavours and can transform a Jukes curry night into' Matthew Jukes, Money Week


Tasting Notes

A delicious mix of sunkissed Roussillon Macabeu and Vermentino fruit, this is as fresh and fun a white as you could wish for, but which also offers more mouthfeel and complexity than its peers. There’s a bit of white peach, yuzu citrus, and a more-ish fleshiness to the palate. This would make a lovely apero or a dry white to complement a starter of smoked salmon with citrus dressing and horseradish cream. It’s worth noting what the winemaker says about this wine: “The 2017 is particularly good as the fruit that would normally go for our top Vermentino, Rock n’ Rolle, all went in here instead. Why? Well, winter 2017 saw our first frost in 60 years, and then, in the summer, the boar got to the fruit as well. There just wasn’t enough to bottle it on its own, so we added it to Le Grill.”
