Lirac Blanc La Fermade, Domaine Maby 2018
A white Rhône that never ceases to amaze for its freshness and vitality. The 2017 is full-flavoured yet crisp and refreshing with it. The secret here is the use of the picpoul grape, which naturally retains its food-friendly freshness.
But wait, the grape variety named below is Grenache Blanc. Oh, and the reference is to the 2017 vintage and the wine is the 2018 vintage.
Confused? I was.
Luckily Domaine Maby has a website with a fact sheet on the 2018 wine which says it is a blend of Grenache (51%), Clairette (33%) Picpoul (16%) .
