Production

The grapes are sourced from 30 year old Sauvignon Blanc vines grown on the hill of St Andelain in a mix of Silex and Kimmerigian clay soils. The individual parcels are vinified separately. The grapes are gently pressed pneumatically. Prior to fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the must is naturally clarified by cold stabilisation and some of the grapes are macerated on the skins for a short period to maximise flavour complexity. Either wild or selected yeasts are used, depending upon the conditions - indigenous yeasts are believed to add more character. The fermentation is cool and slow over 3 weeks and the wine remains on the fine lees. The gravity fed cellar is on two levels and is fully temperature controlled.

Tasting Note

The 2020 vintage was fairly hot, giving generous ripe fruit flavours, however the wines have remained linear and fresh. Floral and herbaceous, this is a concentrated wine with great elegance, complexity and power.

Best served chilled with shellfish, grilled white fish or chicken and soft cheeses or on its own as an apéritif
