Sauvignon Blanc * 75cl * 13% ABV * Loire Valley, France
Aromas of lemon-oil, nettles, gooseberry and a hint of coriander lead to a palate stuffed with lovely lime cordial / key lime pie and gooseberry flavours and a long mineral finish. Serve with white meat, goat’s cheese or anything with a fin.
The attention to detail in looking after Regis’s 30 year old vines (hence the name of the wine) is staggering – from vine tucking (keeping unruly vines in place with wire) to leaf plucking from the south sides of the vines only. This exposes the grapes to the gentler morning sun but they remain covered from the harsher afternoon rays.
