Sauvignon Touraine 'La Loire', , Orchidees Maisons de Vin

Sauvignon Touraine 'La Loire'

Origin: Touraine, Loire, France

The Loire Valley, France's third largest wine-producing region, represents, from the Atlantic to the Centre region, the point of balance between sweetness and freshness, tradition and modernity. These harmonious blends, favoured by a generally temperate climate and remarkably varied and rich terroirs, have given rise to the greatest diversity of wines in the world, with an unequalled diversity and expression of grape varieties. This Touraine reveals notes of exotic fruits and ripe fruits typical of the Appellation.

Vinification

The fermentation is carried out at a low temperature in thermoregulated vats and protected by oxygen. The temperatures are mastered between 16 and 18°C to develop the delicate aromas of Sauvignon and to conserve all of the grapes crispness and fruit. Four to ten months maturing in stainless steel vats provides the wine with stability and balance.
