Thierry Merlet is a Loire winemaker who has completed vintages all over the world, one of the more recent being with Petaluma in Australia. We worked with him in the creation of this wonderfully fresh and aromatic Touraine Sauvignon Blanc. The estate is south of Tours and has a wide variety of terroirs to choose from when selecting wines for their blends. We have blended together a wine that displays fresh, mineral and delicate herbal characters with a parcel of fruit from a warmer site that has more gooseberry and cut grass aromas. The result is a fragrant, complex and attractive varietal wine that offers great value and perfect summer drinking.
