Sebastien Riffault - Skeveldra Sancerre 2017
Region: Sancerre / Loire Valley
Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc
Seriously complex wine. Notes of apricot, mango, stone fruit and what I can only describe as a frozen Danish. Mineral and saline texture balanced by the complex layers of rich flavour. Freshness and depth. Delicious.
Sauvignon Blanc from a 1ha parcel in St. Satur. The vines are 50 years old on average and grown on soils with a high content of silex. 50% botrytis. Direct press, then fermented and aged for two years in tank, then one year in old barrels. Zero SO2.
