Further Details

This attractive and unusual dessert wine is made from pure Grenache gris, and has a complex bouquet with distinct aromas of orange flower, mandarin zest and grapefruit. On the palate it's clean, bright and minerally—chilled, it would certainly surprise and delight as an aperitif or with foie gras, tuna sashimi or creme brûlée.

Maury is an appellation in the Pyrenees foothills specialising in vins doux naturels (fortified, sweet wine), produced mostly from the various varieties of the Grenache grape: noir, blanc and the under-utilized gris. The area also also makes quirky dry reds and whites under the IGP Côtes Catalanes or the appellations Côtes du Roussillon and Côtes du Roussillon Villages.

As with the winery's Muscat, a process called mutage delivers the potent sweetness of the style. Fermentation of the wine is stopped by the addition of grape spirit, raising the degree of alcohol and retaining a proportion of the natural fruit sugars.
