Fresh, citrus flavors take centre stage in this traditional Sancerre wine. Far isolated from the sulphurous wines that have dominated the mass market, this wine is light-bodied and fresh tasting.
The aroma has floral notes that match this delicate wine that is light and golden in color. The limestone soil these grapes are grown in gives this wine a chalky minerality, whilst still being relatively acidic.
Pair this Sauvignon Blanc with green vegetables or vinaigrettes. We suggest serving this wine with fried zucchini, or a fresh greek pasta salad. Chill to 7-10 degrees Celsius and pour into a glass with a medium to long stem with a narrow bowl.
Sauvignon Blanc 100%
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Unique about the Sancerre Area?
Most wine regions are over large areas of land, but Sancerre is actually a small town in the Loire Valley in South-West France. This village is quintessentially French, with traditional-style buildings and a rich history. This means Sancerre isn’t a grape, and Sancerre wines are almost always made using a Sauvignon Blanc grape.
This area is perfect for growing these grapes, which require lots of light but low heat. The high altitude of this area gives their Sauvignon Blanc an advantage over New Zealand variants, as the temperature is cooler whilst still maintaining the bright sunshine.
