Dom Guy Allion Sauvignon de Touraine 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This domaine with its beautiful Touraine-style house made out of tufa produces first class Sauvignon from vines grown on perruche (sandy-clay) soil. The estate is managed according to the Terra Vitis programme, a codified system which posits not only respect for the environment but knowledge of the land, parcel by parcel. This sensitivity to the environment means that natural rather than chemical solutions can be pursued in the vineyard. The grapes are picked at maximum ripeness and immediately transported to the winery to prevent oxidation. This Sauvignon de Touraine, which in previous years has garnered high praise from the Guide Hachette has lifted aromas of elderflower cordial, Victoria plums and hints of grass come from this wine. The palate is filled with gooseberry fool infused with elderflower and hints of summer fruit.

Grapefruits galore. Perhaps to much, but still a nice wine.

My wife and I sipped through a bottle at St Pancras Staion, in London, while waiting for her family to arrive on the Eurostar. What a lovely, crisp, sweet and refreshing wine. Perfect for a warm summer afternoon or a grilled Seabass.
