WINEMAKING

Harvest : After tasting of the grapes, mechanical harvesting (between 4am and 9am in the morning) to take advantage of the cooler temperatures which help to reduce oxidation.

Winemaking : Skin maceration (8 - 12 hours), pneumatic pressing, and holding at low temperature (8°C) for one week- Fermentation at 16-18°C with yeasts expressing the natural characteristics of Sauvignon Blanc and Gros Manseng.

Ageing : On fine lees for several months before blending.
The wine is kept out of contact with oxygen throughout production.

TASTING NOTES

Yellow colour with slight silvery lights.
Fresh, explosive bouquet, resulting from a surprising combination of the aromas of the Gros Manseng (white peach, mango and acacia) and the citrus and white flowers notes of the Sauvignon.
Elegant palate, with a nice balance between the smooth attack and the notes of yellow fruits and pineapple on the fresh finish.
