BORDEAUX BLANC, Argadens 2016


Product Description

Pale yellow with a green rim, crisp and powerful nose with citrus and floral aromas mingling with rose and passion fruit. A chewy, ample palate with refreshing acidity and a harmonious, lingering finish.

Produced in very small quantities, this blend Semillon and Sauvignon from 30 year old vines, harvested at optimal maturity. The musts are protected from oxidation by inert gas during prefermentation maceration and fermented in new oak barrels. The wines remain on full lees for 3-4 weeks with stirring two or three times weekly before being racked and held for two to three months on fine lees with weekly stirring. They are then racked again, blended, fined and cold stabilized before being bottled.
