(2019) A typical blend of grape varieties from this area that is a southern extension of the Rhône Valley, this is made up of 35% Roussanne, 30% Grenache Blanc, 15% Vermentino, 15% Marsanne and 5% Viognier. There's gentle pear and a little boiled sweet, cold ferment character, then a touch of mint leaf of basil. In the mouth there is plenty of sweet peachy fruit in a wine that is light, arguably a touch dilute, but then that does aid the freshness and ensure it avoids the blowsy tendency of those southern varieties, the juicy lemon acidity balancing well into the finish. A highly quaffable, lowish alcohol wine that's perfect for drinking this summer. In Lidl stores as part of their 'wine tour', spring 2019. Watch the video
