Pale lemon in hue. Highly expressive nose of lychee, mandarin, grapefruit and orange blossom. An explosion of tropical and citrus fruit flavours, coupled with mouth-watering acidity and great length. A very special wine indeed! Sauvignon Blanc - 40%, Colombard - 40%, Gros Manseng - 20%
Food Matching: Complex and delicious by the glass and also fantastic with fine flaked fish, shellfish and creamy sauces. Would also pair well with white meats that were poached or lightly fried.
Vineyard: The grapes were picked at night to prevent oxidation and retain freshness. The cooling influence of the Atlantic tempers the warm climate and helps to provide a long, breezy ripening period perfect for aroma and acidity development.
Vinification: A blend of the very best parcels of Sauvignon Blanc (40%), Colombard (40%) and dry Gros Manseng (20%) vineyards. Each variety is vinified separately. After pressing, the juices are refrigerated to 4 degrees for around 3 weeks with regular stirring to increase the aroma intensity. After this the juices are racked and fermented at 13 degrees. The gross lees (which are very rich in aromatic compounds) are then pressed, filtered and blended back into the final wine. The blend is assembled and the wine is aged on its fine lees for 4 months with regular stirring to maximise intensity, complexity and texture.
