Crushed & Cured

Château Barrejat, Pacherenc du Vic Bilh Sec, France, 2022


A little known - and hard to pronounce - but delicious Gros Manseng from the same area as Madiran, north of Pau. Pale gold. Pretty perfume of fresh pineapple; and a wholly consistent juicy mouthful of ripe pineapple, with plenty of volume and a mildly spicy finish. An exuberant, full-flavoured wine at a modest price
