Château Saint-Roch Côtes Du Rhône Blanc
Chateau Saint-Roch Cotes Du Rhone Blanc has lemon and grapefruit citrus notes on the nose, plus white blossom.
It is fresh and clean on the palate, underpinned by a stoney minerality.
With white meats and fish it is a joy to drink but to really make your palate come alive, enjoy it as an apéritif.

The freshness and complexity of Château Saint-Roch Côtes Du Rhône Blanc is due to its mix of five different grape varieties.
Half of the cuvée comprises Grenache Blanc, with a further 20 percent being Clairette and the remainder being 10 percent each of Viognier, Bourboulenc and Roussanne.
The grapes were pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery, with the juice being chilled as it clarified.
It was then fermented partly in stainless steel and the balance in barrel.
