The informative bit; Grenache Gris is a paler, close relation of the black grape variety Grenache that you find in many red wines from Languedoc, the Southern Rhone valley and Spain, under the name Garnacha. Grenache ‘noir’ is also used extensively in rosé across southern France and beyond. The gris has a lighter pinky-grey skin, which is reflected here in the beautifully pink colour of the wine.

Tasting notes; The Villa Blanche has a really light and fresh peach nose, immediately conjuring up warm days and long summers evenings. Delicate with more peach and not overly dry. To follow on in the footsteps of the Villa Blanche Picpoul and Syrah, this wine does not disappoint.

Drinking hints and tips: Great with a bowl of cashew nuts or, needless to say, summer barbecues.
