Domaine du Pré Baron, Touraine Sauvignon Blanc

£10.75

A very new world style with aromas of fresh grapefruit, intense nettle, just sliced green peppers and a hint of honey. Palate is refreshing and light, with hints of peach and apricot and mouth filling minerality, teamed with clean acidity. This wine shows a great balance of ripeness and freshness with underlying minerality – just what Touraine Sauvignon should be.

Description

Very moreish and just what Touraine Sauvignon should be! A very new world style with aromas of fresh grapefruit, intense nettle, just sliced green peppers and a hint of honey. Palate is refreshing and light, with hints of peach and apricot and mouth filling minerality, teamed with clean acidity. This wine shows a great balance of ripeness and freshness with underlying minerality – just what Touraine Sauvignon should be. Honeysuckle and ripe peaches on a warm summer’s day. Very quaffable, Vineyards are on sandy soils on clay subsoil. Vines are 20 years old, planted at 6600 plants / ha. Harvested at optimal maturity (analysis and tasting of grapes), grapes are fed into a pneumatic press. 20-25% will be macerated, depending on the characteristics of the vintage. This is followed by static settling for 12 to 24h. Fermentation is slow at 18 °C for three weeks in stainless steel vats. There is no malolactic fermentation. Wines are matured on fine lees until bottling, which happens the following spring (March) to ensure optimum flavor. Food Recommendations:- A great aperitif, but useful with foods needing a good crisp white, such as smoked salmon, or even just an omlette and salad.
