Highly sought after for its versatility, Sauvignon Blanc has become one of the most popular varietals in the world. It is indigenous to France and exceptionally grown and loved in the Loire Valley. This fragile grape is very sensitive to both soil and climate and thrives in the chalky soils and moderate temperatures of this region. The Caves de Loire, a cooperative, was established in 1951. Located in the hills of the Loire Valley, vignerons and winemakers combine more than 65 years of traditional experience with modern techniques to produce a wide variety of innovative and interesting wines. The Desjacques Sauvignon Blanc was produced in 100% stainless steel tanks, preserving its freshness and complex aromatics. An exceptional and affordable Sauvignon Blanc that is exclusive to WineCollective. We sourced this wine to become your summer saviour; enjoyable from dusk to dawn and coast to coast! Chill well to 7 degrees and enjoy this year.
Pale lemon with clean clear rim.
Super aromatic and inviting! Refreshingly clean aromas of gooseberry, lemon zest and grapefruit pith jump from the glass. A little bit of white stone fruit shows through. Mineral notes of crushed wet flint and fresh cut grass are present.
Sauvignon Blanc from France typically produces fresh, aromatic wines with floral and citrus notes ending with hints of minerality. Balanced mouthfeel filled with zippy acidity and fresh citrus and gooseberry flavours are upfront and not shy! Lemon, lime, grapefruit zest dance on the palate like fireworks! A herbaceous-ness is there but not overwhelming. The wet slate balances out the finish which is medium in length.
Food Pairing: Perfect for hot summer nights with goat cheese and olive tapenade canapés. Chicken or a lightly poached fish salad are also home runs.
