Sauvignon Blanc - Sémillon - Département 33 - Bordeaux - France
2/3 Sauvignon Blanc and 1/3 Old Vine Sémillion, skin contact and six days of maceration give the wine beautiful phenolic texture and grip. Fermentation begins in stainless steel, and is completed in one year old French 225l barrels. Seeking body and texture, the wine is left to age on the lees with regular stirring until November, and no bâttonage until April prior to bottling.
Aromatic notes of lime with hints of freshly cut grass and honeysuckle on the nose lead through to a wonderfully textured palate, with refreshing acidity and a driven mineral finish.
