TASTING NOTES

Among her many other talents, Andrea Mullineux is a superb blender of grapes and parcels. This is a case in point: a cuvée of mostly Chenin Blanc with the remaining 31% divided between Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Viognier and Semillon. Leesy, mealy and subtly wooded, with pear, quince and peach flavours and a creamy, palate-caressing finish.
