Delicious. Nose of freshly cut dry grass, soft herbaceous & aromatic. On the pallet bright, fresh & crisp. A balance of ripe tropical fruits from kiwi, guava and light mango against a citrus grapefruit pith flavour and mouth-watering dryness. NM February 21' (with a Prawn and Chorizo Risotto.)
About the Wine
Go retro go alternative - Ideal Sancerre VFM mid week replacement and elegant French throw back from a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
The soil is of “Perruche” type made up of clay-with-flints with more or less of silica and gravels. Most of the parcel is in “premiere cotes” with a beautiful exposure and a rather important slope allowing the flow of extent of water.
The Winemaking Process: The gathering of the grapes is carried out with a maximum of respect of the grain; a sorting is realised before the setting in press. A slow pressing and a separation of the juices are made. A racking is carried out before fermentation. The control of the temperature is kept at 18 degrees, in order to preserve a maximum of aromas and smoothness with the end of alcoholic fermentation, the wine is separated from lees and sulphated slightly.
