SÉBASTIEN RIFFAULT
LOIRE VALLEY


~ White Wine ~
~ 100% Sauvignon Blanc ~

‘Auksinis’ = golden. 60 year old vines of Sauvignon Blanc from a 1 ha plot on clay-limestone soil. Late harvest in mid-October yielding at only 20 hl / ha. The grapes are harvested ripe with 50% botrytis. 3 months of fermentation in stainless steel with malolactic followed by 2 years aging in old barrels on lees. No filtration, no fining, no added sulfur.
A beautiful deep color with its distinctive golden yellow. The palate offers an unreal display of peach melba, overripe apples and pears. Even some piña colada! Nice minerality, acidity and freshness.
