The crisp youth of this wine make it perfect for enjoying in good company

After a whistle-clean attack buoyed by silky tannins, the tangy cherry flavours on the palate bring freshness and elegance. This sociable wine will go down a treat whatever the occasion – pairingbeautifully with terrines, cold prepared meats, white meat or mild cheeses alike.
