Le Soula's flagship white, this is a blend of predominantly Sauvignon Blanc, Vermentino, Grenache Blanc and Macabeu, all from aged vines which have been growing for at least 25 years. Full flavoured and vibrant, the style is fresh and dry and would lend itself well to soft cheeses such as goat's cheese and feta as well as light salads.
"Le Soula produce really fresh and elegant wines. It's a brilliant winery too, completely organic and a haven for flora and fauna. I love the fact that wild boar are said to emerge from the forests to turn over the soils in search of grubs and herbs, which are to be found in abundance here."
Le Soula wines are made from old vines at Fenouilledes, located at the foot of the Pyrenees mountains. At 650 metres above sea level, these vines are some of the highest in France. Le Soula's founding group, Gerard Gauby (one of the Roussillon's most respected vignerons), Mark Walford and Roy Richards were of the belief that the old vines would benefit from a cooler climate and saw great potential to produce wines of really high quality, thanks to the granite soils and variable climate of hot southern sun and cooler mountain wind and rains. Established in 2001, the winery quickly became renowned for producing really pure and precise wines.
