After a late frost at the beginning of April which spared the estate, followed by a mild spring and an exceptional flowering, drought set in. However, our vines resisted superbly thanks to a well thought-out and accomplished vineyard management. The harvest was early, but the quality of the juice is quite remarkable.
Château La Peyruche is located on the magnificent hillsides overlooking the Garonne River. This wine is made from a blend of 3 plots on clay and clay-limestone soils. All our plots are cultivated according to the specifications of the Organic Agriculture.
This white wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
The grapes are harvested at maturity and then pressed. The resulting juice is then settled and fermented at low temperature. This cuvée is partially vinified in new barrels and aged on the lees. Also, we make regular batonnage to preserve the purity of fruit of this wine.
The nose reveals aromas of exotic fruits (pineapple, mango) and citrus fruits, as well as very delicate floral notes completed on the palate by a perfume of apricot brought by the Semillon. The saline finish gives it a nice sapidity, round and slightly acidity.
FOOD AND WINE PAIRING
Served chilled between 10 and 12°C, this wine is perfect with grilled fish or fish in sauce, a seafood platter, or poultry in cream sauce.
