Fermented and aged for 8 months in neutral French oak barrels.
Aromas of ruby grapefruit and other ripe citrus on the nose reveal flavours of green apple, peach and subtle spice notes and an elegant long finish.
This fruit is from Sunnydale Vineyard in Saanichton. It is 3.9 Acres of Southeast facing vineyard with soils comprised of silty marine loam.
Sauvignette has large loose clusters of medium sized berries. It is pleasant to farm and with smaller leaves it grows an open canopy. It is generally picked mid harvest and whole cluster pressed to neutral French oak barriques for fermentation and aging.
Food Pairing Notes
Sauvignette proves fun to pair with a variety of food. It is a great sushi wine but can lighten up the richness of cassoulet. Sauvignette and All Dressed chips is also the real deal.
