Flying Solo Grenache Blanc - Viognier

Flying Solo Rosé Flying Solo Grenache - Syrah
Braving it all
The Flying Solo range flies in the face of convention, shunning international varieties in favour of the typical Mediterranean Grenache grape which forms its backbone, blended with Syrah, Viognier or Cinsault. It celebrates the intrepid ‘Aéropostale’ pilots who risked life and limb to ensure postal deliveries in the 1920s.
