The Wine

Details

A very interesting and promising grape and this is a delicious example. Doral is a cross between Chardonnay and Chasselas. Stronger bodied than Chasselas and fruitier than Chardonnay. Perfect for cheese fondue if you think the classic Chasselas is often too light - or with freshwater fish.

A guaranteed puzzler in a blind tasting (well yes, it is a bit unfair!).

Flo says of the 2016 (August 2018): Think Chasselas is quite simple on the palette? Or you think Chardonnay can be too rich? This wine is a hybrid of both grapes and it takes the best parts of both of them. Lemon balm, flint rocks, white peach and a note of Creme Brulee make up this unusual wine. A personal favourite of mine, this swiss wine can unite even the most different of palettes. Well worth a try!

We tried, and very much enjoyed, the 2017 Doral at the weekend.

Doral "Expression"

I am not surprised that there is demand for the Doral, I ordered a bottle in Melton's restaurant in York recently and saw that you were the supplier. My friends and I were extremely impressed with it. I am amazed that this isn't better known, and that it is only grown in Switzerland. As a cross between Chasselas and Chardonnay it certainly adds something new to the equation and I would have expected quite a few growers to be trying to see what they could achieve with the grape. I am not an expert on wine description but thought it offered a lot of complexity, with aniseedy notes among the aromatic feel of the wine. It went extremely well with the creamy pork dish that we tried it with. I am sure we will be ordering some more in due course.
