Cuvée Ariadne - Limited Edition
This white wine is highly individual, arguably unique. It is the show-case wine of Domaine Vintur’s wine-maker James Wood and reflects his love of our terroir and of Grenache.
It is the product of his experimentation with barrel-aged white wine from a number of vintages, in this case 5 successive years, blended together, in a manner similar to the solera method used in Spain to make fine sherry. The result is fresh, rich, nutty and opulent.
Vin de France N.V.- Ariadne is an original wine which lives outside the straight-jacket of Appellation rules.
Ariadne helped Theseus kill the Minotaur and became the wife of Dionysus, god of wine.
90+% Grenache Blanc, some Roussanne and Clairette.
A honeyed vibrant colour and a nose of deep rich roasted nuts and exotic fruits, showing a clean vibrant precise freshness.
The palate opens with an intensity and freshness which develops as if from opulent shimmering sunshine, growing on the palate. You are drawn into the ripeness of the exotic fruit and mountain freshness which combine and hold in the finish like an angel’ kiss, fresh and pure!
