Location: Southwest France. The landscapes of Gascony spread from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pyrenees, providing fascinating terroirs.  Sun-kissed days in the south of France promote ripe grapes packed full of sunshine. On the other hand, the Atlantic brings chilly ocean breezes and cool nights which improves the lovely fruity aromas of the wine.

Soil: Clay and sandy soils store water during the rainy spring which is then released when the vines grow, enabling them to get through the dry summers.

Vinification: The wine making process is meant to preserve freshness and aromas.  Grapes are harvested early in the morning, when temperatures are low.  They undergo a six-hour cold maceration to extract varietals aromas.  Pressing occurs in pneumatic press to preserve the crop quality.  The deposit from the must is filtered and added to the pressed juice in order to enhance the great expression of primary aromas – this specific technique is mainly used in the Gascony wine region.  Slow alcoholic fermentation at a low temperature.

Tasting Notes: Pale lemon color with hints of green.  Astonishing lime fruit aromas on the nose followed by lovely tropical fruit flavors and herbal notes on the finish.  Refreshing acidity balanced by a silky mouthfeel.  Enjoy this wine chilled, as an aperitif or with summer salads, shrimp spring rolls, grilled fish, and goat cheese.
