This crisp, grassy Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Touraine region of the central Loire Valley just to the east of Tours and is made by Guy Allion, one of the leading lights of the Haut Perron area. The estate is managed according to the organic 'Terra Vitis' programme, a codified system which encourages not only respect for the environment but knowledge of the land, parcel by parcel. Therefore only natural rather than chemical solutions are pursued in the vineyard.
A light straw in colour with aromas of citrus and pineapple. The flavours are of gooseberry and grapefruit with a hint of asparagus. The finish is zesty and tart with further flavours of lemon and lime. Intense and fresh, this would be great with grilled perch with fennel, feta pizza or herbed tarragon chicken.
