Château Sainte-Marie - Vielles Vignes blanc - 2017 alc. 12.5%
70% Sauvignon Gris and blanc, 25% semillon, 5% muscadet
Gris is more exotic and gives a slight pinkness of the first press. Selection of old vines on the estate, average age 22yrs. Clay and a little sand with limestone subsoil. 100% in tank - no oak to keep freshness.
Fresh and crispy. Perfect wine for enjoying with friends. Not complicated but refreshing, exotic/passion fruit, satisfying texture. Excellent everyday drinking wine. Great value too.
Available in the UK from: Great Western wine
