Straw yellow with tinges of lime green, the nose is complex, with banana, citrus and floral aromas, pear drop and crushed tarragon. There are citrus, herbal and pineapple flavours on the palate, but also a creaminess leading to a lively finish.
Enjoy when young, but will develops pleasant honey notes over time.The blend comprises 30% Grenache Blanc, 30% Roussanne, 20% Bourboulenc and 20% Clairette.
Owned by Kilkenny man Gay McGuinness, with winemaking duties undertaken by Florent Chave, Provence winery Domaine des Agnes is probably as close as you'll get to world class 'Irish' wines.
The estate is situated on a hillside facing Mont Ventoux, 'The Giant of Provence', which rises to almost 2,000m in altitude. The mountain has a profound influence on the climate of the vineyards with cool evening breezes refreshing the vines in summer after the day's intense heat, and so enabling the vines to maintain high natural acids and elegant tannins. For fans of Rhône, these wines are a must-try.
