Fine Wine from Our Bottle Shop and Taproom:
Regarded by Matthew Jukes as one of the best Viognier producers, Laurent Miquel’s Solas is a well-balanced, food-friendly wine.
Grapes are night harvested with just a light filtration to enhance the fruit character. Solas reflects the purity, balance and light handed approach that characterises Laurent Miquel’s approach to wine-making
« Solas » is the Irish for ‘light’ and in Old French means ‘joy’, ‘pleasure’, ‘enjoyment’.
Golden yellow, light straw colour. Delicate melon. apple and herbaceous notes on the nose, joined by complex floral aromas with a hint of orange blossom. A full-bodied, harmonious wine with a distinct honeyed character is balanced by crispness in a layered finish that is juicy and mouthwatering.
Well balanced with medium body. Aromas of stone fruits with hints of almond and honeysuckle and characteristic fruit flavours of apricot and peach.
