  • NOSE:
  • Sauvignon Blanc’s celebrated aromatics are clearly on display, with classic note of citrus, tropical fruit, and broom blossom, lifted by a subtly sweet florality.
  • PALATE:
  • Crisp and vibrant on the palate, it offers fruit that is notably vivacious and self-confident. Quite rich and with good weight, the impressions of sweetness derived from the sur lie maturation are in admirable balance with the zesty acidity, which drives a mineral-laden finish of impressive length.
  • WINEMAKING:
  • After a meticulous quality selection, the whole clusters were given a very slow, gradual pressing, while great care was exercised to prevent oxidation of the fruit. After gravity settling of some 12 hours, the separate lots of must were put in barriques, 23% of which new and 27% used, in steel tanks, and in concrete and oak vats (50%). Fermentation temperatures did not exceed 22°C, and the wine did not go through malolactic fermentation. The wine matured on the fine lees for 6 months, with regular bâttonage throughout the period, followed by the assemblage of the final blend. After a light fining, it rested an additional 12 months in the bottle before release.
