- The Wine
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!
