A blend of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier and Roussanne giving fresh stone fruit flavours with a lift of exotic fruit.  Try it with a stir-fry.

There is a huge range of wines on this 3 for 2 offer, so mix your selection. This wine has delicious silky, spice-dusted blackberry and raspberry fruit.
