We know 'Gros Manseng' isn't the nicest name for a grape. In fact it sounds like an unflattering description of a singer. But forget all that: its cleansing acidity and flavours of quince and white blossom make it a top companion for Sauvignon Blanc and more than compensates for its unfortunate moniker.

Gros Manseng is grown widely in the southwest France. It is a late-ripening variety with small berries that produce wine with a deep yellow robe, ample acidity and great structure. Janeil have expertly handled it here, bringing out its latent characteristics of grapefruit, mango and bright floral notes.

    You wouldn't want to drink the Mediterranean; it's pretty deep, salty and polluted. Luckily scattered all around it are sun-drenched vineyards, which offer a delicious alternative. Take your taste buds on a great value holiday through France, Spain and Italy with this case. Perfect for parties or weekday dinners.
