This is our third vintage of Field of the Bee, after the previous 2013 and 2014 vintages both sold out within 9 months of release.
A lovely, fresh and zingy white with notes of citrus fruit, hawthorn blossom, almond and yellow plum.
Eyes: A limpid greenish gold
Nose: Very enticing, with hints of hawthorn and peach blossom, and notes of mirabelle plum
Mouth: Bone dry, but also very soft and approachable, this rich, flavourful white has some of the zing of Sauvignon, but with a much smoother, softer palate, and layers of flavour that keep the interest to the last glass.
Recommended food pairings: Lovely with chicken, grilled pork, rich seafood dishes and butternut squash risotto.
Winemaker: Jean-Marc Lafage
Growing conditions: A good start of the year with dry weather in spring and early summer. The steady Tramontane wind helped develop and concentrate the grapes. The late summer brought some rain, which gave the necessary acidity required to maintain the fresh and zingy style.
Winemaking notes: The grapes that go into this wine come from vineyards belonging to Jean-Marc Lafage (hence it is bottled under the 'Field of the Bee' label, rather than as 'Domaine of the Bee' (which would need to come 100% from our own vineyards) Some of Jean-Marc's vines are over 100 years old, and produce fabulously intense grapes which need careful vinification in cool temperatures, and just a small amount of the wine was aged in barrel.
