Oooh, this is a bit smart! A really very attractive white blend from Stéphane Montez where the Viognier and the hint of Chardonnay provide broad, solid foundations and the interplay between the crispness and zest of the Clairette and the subtle 11 months in oak (demi-muids rather than barrels) provides interest and surprise.

Malolactic fermentation on its lees in oak barrels. Battonage once a month. Aged for 10 months in 600 litre French oak demi-muids.

Tasting notes

Rich and limpid, the almost exotic stone fruit flavours are restrained by precise notes of lime. The deftest touch of oak adds texture and weight without overwhelming any of the fruit characters, and the finish just keeps going and going.

Food match

Cheese fondue.
