Sulphite Free Wine

Domaine Mayrac Chenin sans Sulfite

Domaine Mayrac have introduced two new sulphite free wines to their Esprit Nature range - this Chenin Blanc and also a Rose.

This Esprit Nature Chenin is a step up in quality from their No SO2 Chenin, being a little fuller and richer in flavour with a longer finish. It's grown at altitude giving the wine a lovely freshness.

Please note it is bottled unfiltered so will have some natural sediment, making the wine a little darker in colour. This is perfectly normal and doesn't affect the flavour of the wine.

This wine has been rebranded as "Papillon". We will update photo etc when we get chance.
