A Colombard, Ugni Blanc blend which is becoming quite fashionable.
We enjoyed this crisp citrusy little number at a pre-Theatre Early Bird in Citron prior to seeing Ross O’Carroll-Kelly at the Gaiety.
Citron was nice too. & we thoroughly enjoyed the Show. Thanks Lesley!
€10 retail. €23 on the list.
From the Winesdirect website:
The appellation “Sables Fauves” (Tawny Sands) refers to a special terroir in the east of the Landes where the soil is sandy and has been coloured by iron oxides. The Bubolas’ aim is to produce a dry white wine and a fruity red which are characteristic of their region, and which they can offer at a very competitive price. This sandy terroir is not the easiest to cultivate, and is only lately acquiring a good reputation for wine, thanks to the experience and careful work of winemakers like Jean Claude Bubola.
