Winemaking Notes: Just under 9 acres of vineyards are planted on limestone clay soil rich in fossilized oysters. The manually harvested grapes are destemmed before native yeast fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The naturally high acidity of the Sauvignon Blanc grapes blocks malolactic fermentation. The wine ages on the lees between 3 to 6 months in stainless steel after fermentation and is bentonite fined and diatomaceous earth filtered before bottling.
Tasting Notes: This is a crisp and clean white Bordeaux that shows the roundness and balance that Sauvignon Blanc can exhibit when grown in the Gironde. It is bright and clean with aromas and flavors of lime, grapefruit, and Granny Smith apple.
