Maceration: 24 hours, selection of very ripe grapes
Maturation: 3 years in used 500 l oak barrels
Boris’s tip: Nice aromatic orange wine with elderflower aroma.
The wine is of a golden yellow colour. Its scent is intensive, rich, fine and reminiscent of elder, black currant, dried grass and leaves of tomato. It is dry, soft, pleasantly fresh and mineral. It is of a serious, upright body and elegant and intensive taste with a lasting aftertaste. It’s an exceptional varietal sauvignon.
»Super expressive and aromatic Sauv Blanc with just 24 hours of skin contact at the beginning of fermentation, which beefs up the texture a bit. Lovely red grapefruit and lemon peel aromas together with some thyme and sage notes. Gets a little heavy on the palate, due to the high alcohol, but great evolution and there is enough acidity. Overall, a very nice effort. Craves food.«(source: The Morning Claret by Simon J Woolf)
