AOC Bordeaux Blanc
A blend of 51% Sauvignon Gris, 30% Sémillon, 18% Sauvignon Blanc, and 1% Muscadelle. The grapes are hand-harvested at full maturity, with a careful selection of only the very best bunches. After a brief period of skin contact (about 24 hours) fermentation (by plot/variety) is in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks in order to retain the freshness/purity of the fruit.
Ageing is in French-oak barrels, on the fine lees, with regular battonage. Bottled June 2020. Suitable for vegan/vegetarian diets. 13.5% alc./vol., R.S. 0.9 gr/L
Our tasting note: Bright, pale lemon yellow colour. Ripe aromas and flavours of white peach, fresh citrus (pink grapefruit), warm lemon, and apricot with toasty notes of honey, vanilla, ginger spice, and dry herbs. Elegant, full, and dry with balanced acidity, and a long finish.
Menu matches: A full-flavoured aperitif wine, and will pair with meatier-style seafood dishes (even with creamier sauces), white meats (pork and poultry), seafood platters, and earthier style vegetarian dishes.
