This wine comes from Katie Jones’ vineyard under the imposing Cathar Castle of Queribus in Maury in the Roussillon where Domaine Jones started back in 2009. It is made exclusively from old vine Grenache Gris – quite a rarity! It’s a delicate pale golden colour. The nose is expressive and fragrant with wild flowers such as mimosa and almond blossom. There is a hint of delicate spice and the oak is subtle and well integrated. On the palate the wine is fresh and lively with citrus fruit, melon, ripe pineapple and pear and a long finish of wild herbs. Serve lightly chilled, this wine a perfect pairing for a medley of fresh summer dishes, juicy scallops, plump grilled prawns, wild mushroom risotto and roast chicken.
