The team at Domaine Gayda has great connections with Boekenhoutskloof in Franschhoek, producers of thefamous Chocolate Block wineand their lovely Semillon both off which I stock. Gayda's winemaker, Vincent Chansault, used to work there and Boekenhoutskloof winemaker, Marc Kent, is a Non-Executive Director of Domaine Gayda helping "...with advice and motivation.... and a fanatical approach to quality." And it shows as all their wines are well made using organic principles (now certified organic) and minimal intervention.
This Pays d'Oc dry white wine is a blend of white Grenache (55%), Macabeo (20%), Marsanne (20%) and Roussanne (5%) which has been only very lightly oaked - only some of the grape juice was fermented and aged in barrels. The blend of grapes, terroir, light oak influence and lees stirring have given it an amazing depth of fruit flavours complemented by salty minerality. It's crisp with very subtle pineapple flavours and a stony minerality plus a very smooth texture. This is A-mazing and tastes more like a £25 bottle of wine. Sauvignon Blanc fans will love it. Mind you I'm more of a Chardonnay girl and this is one of my summer favourites this year! It's also organic & vegan-friendly.
This wine is great on its own but given its body and structure it will also match well with a range of foods including seafood generally, shellfish, fish including fish ceviche or tartare, sushi, smoked salmon & smoked trout. It will also cope well with richer dishes even those in a creamy sauce.
Deep gold colour, very aromatic, with hints of stone fruit and honeysuckle. A rich full bodied wine with real depth, weight and concentration and a hint of oak to add further complexity. A lot of personality. Approachable now but will continue to develop and improve over the next 5 years."
One of three wines of the week in The Observer Jun 2020 "... superb value Freestyle blend, which has Rhône-ish pear, peach and yellow plum plus a distinctive herb-edged freshness."
