At first Lafage’s ‘Cadireta’ feels like a non-oaked Chardonnay – mineral freshness and energy, but by the end of your first glass there’s suggestions of something more rich and glamorous. So be warned – you could be seduced by this blend of Chardonnay and Viognier. Lots of pleasure for the price. Would be an ideal dinner party ‘opening act’.
