Fermented for up to 21 days in stainless steel tanks under low temperature.
Blending five grapes is a tricky path to tread - which makes it even more impressive that this wine is so perfectly in balance, and for that the winemaker deserves real credit.
One of the grapes is the barely-discovered 'Faranah' which has not yet been planted beyond Morocco's borders and it brings floral and aromatic flavours. The Colombard brings the much-needed acidity, the Chardonnay brings the body, the Grenache Blanc brings a touch of sweetness (though this is a dry wine) and the more delicate Clairette lifts the whole affair up into something quite high brow.
What at first looks like a random medley is actually a masterclass of blending. The headline is 'refreshing' - a white wine that will simultaneously quench your thirst but leave you wanting more.
