17/04/2016 – Amistat Blanc 2014

(2016) A wine that falls into the 'natural wine' category given that the grapes are grown without chemicals, only natural yeasts are used and a minimal of sulphur. It is also aged only in large, very lightly toasted barrels. It's a blend of Grenache and Macabeau, and has a haunting floral, straw and sweet earth nose, a light touch of almond or honey. In the mouth it has texture, body and richness - serve it not too cold because it has the layered complexity and some of the meaty character of a red wine. With excellent acidity and the fruit playing against those complex terroir flavours of the Roussillon and very old vines. Watch the video for more information and food matching ideas.
