Richelieu Colombard

DUKE005
Crisp and zesty Southern French white with tropical aromas and a soft finish. Refreshing and thirst-quenching. We blended this wine specially for House of Townend in conjunction with the winemakers and it just sings; a crisp, utterly delicious and very moreish green zesty fruit and pungent, almost Sauvignon-Blanc style intensity.

Tasting Notes

Refreshing aromas of lime and lychee with a subtle hint of white pepper, Juicy, rich, and well balanced on the palate with a vivid finish.

Food Matches

Good as an aperitif. Works equally well with a light chicken salad.

Vinification

The grapes are picked during the night, destemmed and finally go through skin contact maceration. This process enhances the structure and complexity of the wine. A gentle and meticulous pressing leads to a soft extraction of the most aromatic juices. Aging is made in tanks to keep a fruity style.
