About The Wine
A native of the Basque country in France’s South West, Gros Manseng is usually known for its powerful dry whites.
Innovative growers’ coop Rigal offers it up as an approachable take on skin contact styles.
Though orange tinted, it's less savoury than you’d imagine. With the skins adding both spice and lush texture to zesty citrus and green apple, this is balanced, bold and bright.
