Château Pesquié Terrasses Blanc 2018

Ventoux, Southern Rhone, Rhone Valley, FranceThe Chaudière family use “Terrasses” on their signature red and white blends to honour the work done by their ancestors, carving terraces into Pyrennes hillsides around the winery. The poor limestone soil, once underwater, is the perfect medium for growing grapes. In this case, it's a 40/20/20/20 mix of viognier / roussanne / clairette / white grenache. The wine sees no oak, and there is no malolactic fermentation to keep it as fresh as possible. The nose is a riot of floral and citrus notes that spill onto a similarly fresh palate where lemon grapefruit, mandarin, lime rind and sea salt continue the run of freshness and vibrancy. Perfect for vegetarian menus, it will also work with a variety of shellfish, light seafood and cheese. A stylish, super value white.
