- Other Info:
- Domaine Gayda is situated south East of Carcassonne in the Languedoc region of South West France. Known traditionally for its large area of vineyards producing volume table wines, things have changed rapidly over the last 5 to 10 years. The revolution of change is in full swing and Domaine Gayda is in the centre of the revolution. Fruit quality is at the centre of the winemaking philosophy. Sometimes alcohol levels can be quite high because Gayda always harvest the grapes at full ripeness and maturity to really ensure the fruit-tannins are smooth and rounded. This allows the wonderful flavours to express themselves fully without being withheld or disguised by green or unripe tannins. All of Gayda's viti and vini-culture is performed organically and biodynamically.
A superb blend of 85% Grenache Blanc and 15% Viognier. Lots of juicy citrus and tropical fruits, with some peachy nuttiness too. The palate is crisp and refreshing with a good finish.
- "The Flying Solo range flies in the face of
convention, shunning international varieties in
favour of the typical Mediterranean Grenache
grape which forms its backbone, blended with
Viognier. It celebrates the intrepid pilots who risked life and limb to ensure postal deliveries in the 1920s. Good handling of the Grenache Blanc with a splash of Viognier has produced a very drinkable and stylish wine" - Katherine Cole, Wine Journalist.

This wine is nice and smooth, but retains a good freshness. It has plenty of flavour, which means it can stand up to stronger dishes. We'd be drinking this alongside a cheesy, creamy pasta dish!
