Madeleine is originally a Loire valley grape, but this clone came from Switzerland and is known as the ‘Chasselas of the North’. Madeleine is an important component of our Provencal style dry rose, but the 2010 stand alone wine was highly successful and sold out very quickly, so we have followed the our instincts and made this part of our line up.
We are one of the biggest UK producers of MA, described by one Lady Master of Wine as ‘aromatic, floral, usually smells like an English garden after a spring/summer shower’.
This is a very dry, crisp and refreshing white, reminiscent of an Alsace Pinot Blanc. This year is one of the best yet – very smooth with a crisp acidity and good depth. Pair with delicate white meats, fish, creamy cheeses and salads
