Fontanel, Rivesaltes Ambre, 2011

One of the most distinctive and exciting wines in our entire stock. From late-picked, 60 year-old vines of Grenache Blanc and Gris, the Ambré - literally amber - tone develops after at least five years of mildly oxidative ageing in barrel (and here it’s kept a lot longer before bottling). Deep gold, clear and bright. This offer intriguing fumes: caramelised oranges, candlewax and marzipan, with a hint of sherry-like oxidation. That marmalade orange flavour is at the forefront, with accompanying subtleties such as apricot liqueur and walnuts. Not over-sweet, but airy and fragrant. This makes a wonderful partner to hard cheese such as aged cheddar, dried fruit and nuts. Now-2027
