2018 VIA CARITATIS Ventoux Blanc Vox Domini 75cl (Rhone, France)
Style - Rich
Grapes - Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne
Tasting - Such a charmer and such a a surprise at the same time. We knew there were good things going on with Ventoux reds but this white has come out of the blue. Perhaps the instigator of a new frontier?
FYI: Clairette is a 're-discovered grape' that is being recognised for its ability to withstand drought and retain freshness. Growers in the Rhone and South Africa are giving it a new sense of purpose.
