THE 2018 DOMAINE DE DURBAN VIN DE PAYS DE VAUCLUSE BLANC
Will Meinberg, a salesman at Kermit Lynch, describes this wine: “This refreshing blend of Chardonnay and Viognier brings aromas of fresh sun-kissed peaches and cleansing rainwater, which make this wine an embodiment of a summer day. With a crisp and minerally finish, this lively dry white is the perfect accompaniment to your next picnic.”
The wine, a blend of 50% Viognier and 50% Chardonnay is made by Domaine de Durban, an estate located in Beaumes-de-Venise, where history exists in the soil, where one might find ancient Roman roof tiles and medieval pot shards, and where some of the most memorable Southern Rhone wines are being made.
Grapes for the Vaucluse Blanc are hand-harvested and undergo carbonic maceration fermentation and stainless-steel aging for 6 months prior to bottling. Farming is lutte raisonnee—literally reasoned fight—developing and improving the cultivation of vines in ways that are environmentally friendly or sustainable.
Enjoy this “summer in a bottle” wine now with the season and the bounty of the summer harvest!
