Little James Basket Press White (750ml)
Saint Cosme – located north to the village of Gigondas – is the most ancient estate in the region. In fact, there is evidence of a Gallo-Roman villa on the site that dates to 1416! The diversity of soils and cool micro-climates encourage slow, even and late ripening of grapes. The dedication at Saint Cosme is total; they want to best express the extraordinary potential of the terroir. Years of experience, old vines and organic viticulture are also key contributing factors to the high quality of Saint Cosme wines and their elegant house style.
The Basket Press white is a crowd favourite! This blend of Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc is fresh and lightly aromatic with pronounced flavours of candied lemon peel, tangerine and peach. Sauvignon Blanc brings acidity to the blend while Viognier provides fleshiness and attractive notes of stone fruit and flowers. Blending the two varieties results in an aromatic and fresh-tasting wine that’s fun and affordable.
A blend of Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc, fermented in stainless steel.
