Baron de Badassiere Sauvignon Blanc Pays d'Oc 2015

£7.99

 TASTING NOTE

A lemon-yellow colour with lifted citrus fruit aromas on the nose as well as a touch of elderflower. The racy palate has an apple, lemon and stone fruit character, is medium bodied and has a refreshing, long finish.

The grapes for this wine come from selected vineyards around the Etang de Thau and Picpoul area. The vines are planted on sandy Pliocene soils and were both machine and hand-harvested.

The grapes for Baron de Badassière were picked throughout the night so that they arrived fresh and cool to the winery at 5am. There was no skin contact, to avoid extraction of bitter phenolics. Rather, the grapes were pressed immediately and the must was fermented in stainless steel at 15ºC to prevent oxidation of the delicate Sauvignon flavours. Winemaker Graeme Paul did not allow malolactic fermentation to take place and there was no oak ageing. As a result, the style of the wine is pure, fresh and aromatic.
