2017 Grande Maison “Cuvée des Archanges” SEMILLON BLEND Monbazillac, France
A White Grenache from Northern Spain, where winemaker Josep Serra gives us a fantastically textured Mediterranean white wine, beautifully rich and with great acidity. The vineyard is organically farmed and the grapes are hand harvested in a beautiful region affected by a Mediterranean micro-climate. There is a little oak influence in the wine that makes it rounded and elegant but does not affect its freshness at all. The nose is quite Riesling-esque, with plenty of citrus notes. On the palate, there is orchard-fruit perfume and citrus notes plus a touch of refreshing saline notes on the finish.
