Fashionable dry white wine grape now in a sweet style - fascinating! This wine comes from vineyards planted on sundrenched slopes in the Mediterranean garrigue near the Etang de Thau, a coastal lagoon near Marseilles. The garrigue is the name given to open scrub land made up of low-growing, dwarf bushy shrubs including holm oak, juniper, broom and wild herbs such as rosemary, thyme and sage.
The fermentation is stopped by filtration to leave some residual sugar (26g/l) giving a fresh sweet style.
Perfect as an aperitif, or with foie gras, mature cheese and pastries eg goat cheese tarts. Also works well with sweet patisseries such as French apple tart. Versatile.
