Colombard-Sauvignon, 2019, Domaine Horgelus, Côtes de Gascogne
This is as refreshing as wine gets. The blend of Colombard and Sauvignon Blanc grapes combine to create a white wine with powerful yet pleasant citrus notes. When you're in search of a wine for a lunch that will run long, this is it.

About this wine
We love this blend of French grapes for its zesty citrus fruit flavours that will quench any thirst.
The Colombard grape lends sweet melon and peach flavours, while the Sauvignon Blanc adds tangy tartness giving it wonderful acidity. Plus, at only 11.5% alcohol, there's no need to feel guilty about that extra glass you'll be having. This wine is also vegan.
