Profile

Smell

The wine has aromas of lemon, melon and grapefruit, with a hint of lemon candy and some grassy undertones. Combined with aromas of delicate white flowers, it gives an invigorating impression, clean like fresh laundry.

Taste

On the palate, this Sauvignon Blanc has a bright acidity, but is less nervy than its colder-climate counterparts. It’s the fruit that takes centre stage here, with riper tropical fruit flavours alongside Sauvignon Blanc's signature citrus. Fresh and vibrant, this wine will have you longing for spring!

Pairing

Serve as an aperitif before a meal, or match with gently-poached fish dishes or fresh baby arugula salad in a lemony vinaigrette.

Aromas and Flavours

Lemon / Lime

Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.

Grapefruit

As refreshing as aromas come, the smell of grapefruit is purely invigorating.

Pineapple

The sweet aroma of the tropics wafting from your glass - you can almost hear the waves crashing.

Grass

The invigorating smell of a freshly-mowed lawn before the heat of the day takes over.

Floral

You just received a bouquet from a secret admirer and the smell is intoxicating.

Description

Vianney Castan wasn’t born in the vineyards, nor did he inherit a winery. Yet, he has winemaking in his blood. His great-grandfather Joseph Castan founded a modest winery in 1907 and went on to produce award-winning wines in the southern French region of Languedoc. Until misfortune hit: in 1956, France was hit by an extreme cold snap that completely wiped out the vineyards – an event the winery never recovered from. Fast forward to 100 years later. Inspired by the stories of his grandfather and father, Vianney Castan and his wife Emilie decided to pick up where Joseph left off. Naming the company after his great-grandfather, Vianney set out to produce great wine from lesser-known appellations in southern France.

The grapes for this Sauvignon Blanc grow on clay-limestone soils mixed with sands. The warmer climate of southern France produces different aromatics in the grape than cooler French regions such as the Loire – a bit more fruity, but still with green undertones. Serve at 10 ºC –12 ºC and enjoy until 2023.
