Le cadet is an endearing French nickname given to a young apprentice learning his craft. Winemaker John Belsham was once a cadet in Bordeaux where he learnt to make wine. The wine salutes all great mentors whilst the apprentice embraces the responsibility to one day pass the knowledge gained on to another cadet.
We pack over 40 years of winemaking and viticultural experience in every bottle. Sensitive farming and gentle handling of the grapes have created a vibrant, dry style with flavours of summer citrus, wild thyme and crunchy river stones all beautifully balanced and delicious. Enjoy with frittatas, salads, pasta and seafood.
Ideal serving temperature 12°C.
