Ruan Ridge White Table Wine

Ruan Ridge White Table Wine NV
Lambourne, Cornwall, UK, £8.95, cork seal

Night three at Granny’s and to accompany our meal of local Cornish produce – beef, potatoes, greens, strawberries, raspberries and clotted cream – a Cornish wine. Ruan Ridge comes from the Lambourne Vineyard on the Roseland Peninsula near Cornwell's south coast. It is made from a relatively new grape variety called Orion.

The wine is a lovely pale gold colour. Ruan Ridge's has pleasant floral scents alongside aromas of melon, grapefruit and apple blossom. ‘Pleasant’ is again a useful word to describe the palate. There’s a slight sweetness present, but it’s well balanced by suitable melon and pineapple flavours and a touch of acidity. It would have been great to try this alongside some seafood; not a bad drop really.
