Domaine de la Touraize Savagnin Rebelle 2016

Regular price $88.00

2016 // 750ml // ABV 13.5%

100% savagnin from Petit Curolet. Direct pressed, fermented in tank and transferred to old 228L barrels and aged in the attic for 30 months without topping up. The aim was a sous voile wine, but the veil never appeared and strangely neither did the wine oxidise.  So they transferred it to a cool cellar, and topped up for another 6 months. A miraculous happy accident of wine!

Complex and interesting nose. Lemon, nuts, salt, bruised apple, curry leaf, sea breeze. In the mouth it is so fresh and zippy. Clean and icy, with really outstanding and amazing acidity...Love the saltiness and the gently oxidative notes. This is not heavy or intense – has all the characteristics of a sous voile wine but is very light and bright. Elegant for the style. Mouth-watering and moreish. So many layers, and a really exciting wine to drink. - Larkin Imports
