The trick with the world of wine is to find a wine that totally over-delivers on quality, but with a reasonable price tag attached. For me, Domaine Horgelus from France’s most delicious corner, Gascony, hits that mark. The wine is comprised of locally grown gros manseng and international favourite sauvignon blanc. It’s a wine that is better than the sum of its parts: sauvignon on its own at this level can be one-dimensional in flavour but when you add the more exotic Gros Manseng you get a partnership worth investing in. Herbaceous, but also a punch of tropical fruit depth.
