Intense and pure Sauvignon character on the nose. Citrus fresh on the palate, with delicate notes of passion fruits, and subtle nuances of mineral flavours. Well balanced, fresh and at the same time with a soft texture. The purity continues in a long, lingering vibrant finish.
Description

Details

Vibrant citrus aromas underpinned by a seam of Loire like minerality. Perfectly balanced, fresh and crisp, with a fine, smooth complex cocktail of flavours.. The grapes are picked by harvesting machine in the cool of the early morning. A percentage of the best grapes are pumped directly into the vats to keep the skins in contact with the juice and after 12 hours skin maceration at low temperatures, the grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press. The rest of the white grapes are pressed as soon as they arrive at the winery and the juices are allowed to settle.

The fermentation of the clear juice is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Selected aromatic yeasts are used to start a long cold fermentation (15-16 degrees). After fermentation, the wines are left on their fine lees for 3-4 months before being clarified and prepared for bottling.

Priced per case of six bottles.

Wines as good as ever and the buying experience by Eurotunnel to Calais to pick up and have a great lunch at Le Chanel makes this a great way to buy good wine and have a great day out too.
