Joseph Mellot / 2015 Destinea Sauvignon Blanc

COUNTRY/REGION: France/Loire Valley.

GRAPES: 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

ABV: 12.5%

UNIT: 1 x 75cl Bottle.

WINEMAKER NOTES: Elegant and floral on the nose, with hints of lemon and grapefruit. The palate shows good aromatics and balance.

VINEYARDS: All vineyard processes are carried out in an environmental manner, adapted for each terroir.

VINTAGE: 2015 was a challenging year as rains and higher temperatures than usual disturbed the flowering season. Consequently, the yields were lower than in previous years. Fortunately, a very dry summer allowed the grapes to ripen fully and to be in good health before harvest. In the same way that 2014 was a challenging but star year, 2015 is a great vintage that has given very fruity, well-balanced and rich wines with great depth.

WINEMAKING: Following cold static settling, fermentation takes place at low temperatures in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged on its fine lees prior to bottling.

TASTING NOTES: A benchmark introduction to Loire Sauvignon Blanc - fresh, fine and elegant with floral, fruity aromas and well-balanced palate.
