We have named this cuvée ‘Les Magnarelles’, after the women who in former times were responsible for raising the silkworm, of vital importance to the success of the estate.
“This is a beautiful blend of Grenache Blanc, Vermentino and Marsanne and it’s everything
I want from a Southern French white. Textured yet still bright and uplifting, it’s a superb partner
with shellfish and beautifully judged for it’s moreish complexity.”
