Perhaps our least typical cool climate white, we pursue longer hang times with Sauvignon Blanc. This pushes the flavours past the common thiol driven southern hemisphere style into the turpenic range more common in Maritime climates (i.e. Bordeaux or the warmer years in the Loive's Tourraine, or even fresher Napa styles). As a result, melon and grapefruit flavours dominate the palate, while honeysuckle aromas fill out the bouquet.
Lean, white-fleshed fish with mild flavours, oysters, goat’s milk cheeses and fresh salads.
