Saints Hills Frenchie
Istria and Primorje, Croatia
A red Bordeaux blend can be found in both the old and the new wine world. This is neither accidental nor imposed. The varieties in red Bordeaux cuvÃ©e are very well-blended, while the vines grow well in most wine regions of the world. It is very interesting, therefore, to see how well the white Bordeaux cuvÃ©e does in the new conditions. Frenchie is exactly that. The name partly refers to the âtypicalâ French wine and partly to the fact that Michel Roland, a Frenchman, worked as a wine consultant at the Saints Hills winery. Frenchie has a fuller, waxy texture in the mouth. A good ratio of sauvignon and sÃ©millon is reflected in the aromas of stone fruit, viscosity, buttery notes, peach, pear, pineapple and also a flint-like minerality, grass, lemon peel and freshness.
