Sauvignon

Pays d'Oc IGP

Can be served well-chilled as an aperitif and also makes the perfect partner for fish or seafood as well as white meat.

Varietal range: This white wine is a single varietal Sauvignon.

Soil types: The vineyards are located along the Mediterranean shoreline, in the area around Béziers. They enjoy a hot, humid climate which promotes development of aroma in the grapes during ripening, producing a varied range of wine profiles.

Vineyard management: The utmost care is lavished on vineyard management and the health of the fruit. The vines are pruned using the bush vine system.

Winemaking: The grapes are harvested by machine by night to take advantage of the cool night time temperatures. They are then destemmed and undergo short skin contact maceration. The juice is clarified at low temperatures (7°C). Temperatures are regularly checked during fermentation. A small amount of yeast can be added at the start of fermentation to maximise the development of aromas.

Tasting notes: A fresh, nervy wine showing a beautiful golden colour with green tints. Elegant nose freighted with fresh white fruits, peaches and tropical fruits. Aromas of white fruits, white currants and peach on the palate capped off with a long finish.

Drink preferably within the first 2 years after bottling.

Drinking temperature: 10°C.
