Chardonnay, Seyval Blanc & Muller Thurgau
£12

Very aromatic fruity wine. Nose of lime zest, grapefruit, papaya with green, leafy and floral notes.

Big explosion of flavours on the palate; strong refreshing acidity, zesty lime juice leading to a more tropical mix of pineapple and peach.

Interesting blend with the Chardonnay grape coming through adding structure and body.

Light and refreshing, but pleasingly layered. A lot to like here.

Winemakers Description:

A refreshingly dry white, scented with uplifting May blossom and grapefruit aromas followed by juicy lime flavours and a twist of spice.

M&S winemaker Sue Daniels worked with internationally renown winemaker John Worontschak at Denbies Wine Estate to create this blend of Chardonnay, Seyval Blanc and Muller Thurgau. The vineyards were established on the warm south facing chalky slopes of the North Downs in Surrey, encouraging the grapes to ripen in the cool English climate, whilst still retaining a lovely freshness.
