Winemaker Notes

This straw-colored wine has an aroma of herbs and tropical fruit, with hints of lime and green fruit. These complex flavors carry through to the creamy, harmonious palate adding to the mineral, zesty finish. Ready to drink now and the ideal partner for smoked fish, seafood, and creamy poultry or veal dishes.

A blend dominated by 92% Sauvignon Blanc with 8% Semillon. Grapes are from vineyards planted on decomposed granite, stoney clay soils and rich alluvial soils, at altittudes ranging from 150-400 meters above sea level.
