Sables-Fauves

Les Sables Fauves – Domaine de Laballle

£8.60

Pale yellow green in colour this wine has a subtle yet intense nose of tropical fruit and white flowers.
It is a lively white wine, fresh and bold with a mineral edge and a lovely weight of apricot and acacia flavours.

Minimum Order is 6 Bottles

Please Note: This doesn't have to be 6 of the same bottle, it can be mixed.

Orders in multiples of 6 thereafter

Product Description

Blended from 40% each of Sauvignon and Colombard, 15% Gros Manseng and 5% Ugni Blanc all of which were given a cold pre-fermentative soak to enhance the fruit characteristics, the wine has great minerality and about 1 gram of extra residual sugar to help carry those fruit flavours. There are delightful aromas of exotic fruits with notes of acacia behind.
The palate is fresh and lively making it a wonderful aperitif yet it is equally at home with seafood, fish or white meats.
The intention here was to preserve and emphasise the minerality inherited from the iron-rich Sables Fauves soils and to pair this with the bright fruit and acidity of the blend of grape varieties used, resulting in a wine which is delightfully fruity and crisp.

Food Match: Seafood, fish and white meats.
