Citrus fruit based, a lean texture and notes of asparagus, elderflower. Racy!

 

A great value, light and crisp Sauvignon from the Central Loire Valley. Compared to NZ Sauvignon, wines from the Loire are more citrus fruit based, with a leaner texture and notes of asparagus, elderflower and freshly cut grass.

Producer: Domaine Guy Allion

Region/Country: Touraine, Loire Valley, France

Grape/s: Sauvignon Blanc

Production Method: Sustainable viticulture. Temperature controlled fermentation to preserve aromatics

Style: Light, dry and crisp Sauvignon. Very fresh and aromatic

Pairing Suggestion: Seafood, grilled vegetables, salads

Variety: Sauvignon Blanc

Profile: An extremely popular variety worldwide, capable of producing crisp, dry and aromatic whites. It is a very distinctive variety, carrying aromas of gooseberries, nettles, crushed blackcurrant leaves, and occasionally cat’s pee. The best examples offer some restraint of these natural characters, and flinty, smoky complexity to add intrigue. Some producers do utilise varying degrees of barrel fermentation to add texture and richness.

Classic Regions: Sancerre, Pouilly-Fume (France), Marlborough (New Zealand), Adelaide Hills (Australia), Casablanca (Chile)
