Tasting Notes: The aromatic range is dominated by a brioche character with vinous nuances of green apple, citrus fruit and white peach which balance the whole. Encompassing everything from sweet Moscato to approachably crisp Prosecco, these wines are light and lemony with green apple and floral characters.
Food Pairings: Vin du Vouvrey is light with lots of fine and delicate bubbles, there for we love it with light tangy cheeses! It also goes great with soft cheeses and sheeps milk cheeses. Try it with Wigmore or even Yorkshire Pecorino Fresco.
Winemaking Notes: Chenin Blanc, 13% ABV, from Vouvray, France
