Domaine de Vedilhan 'Serica' Pays d'Oc
For ‘Serica’, Vioginer grapes are picked at optimum ripeness with two-thirds barrel-fermented in mature French oak to bring subtle texture and richness.The wine is aptly named after the Latin name for silk, 'Serica'. In the 14th century, silk production or sericulture was as widespread in this region as viticulture. Attractive nose of orange peel, hints of mandarin too. On the palate the oak gives the wine depth and richness but its not oaky. Orange and grapey notes with some musky characters, spice and some freshness on the long finish. Great with spicy fish and shellfish dishes, think pan fried prawns with butter, garlic and chilli.
