FRENCH WHITE FROM THE THREE MUSKETEER COUNTRY
Nice, fresh and very gulpable, but the best feature here is â€˜something differentâ€™ flavourwise. The Gros Manseng offers a little earthiness to partner the zest of the Sauvignon, so the feeling is of a French white from the past â€“ frank, but good. Regional character over modern-day fruitiness and prettiness. A welcome new addition to the shelves.
