DOMAINE DE SALVARD UNIQUE SAUVIGNON BLANC
Made from fruit grown in 20+ year old vineyards in the region of Cheverny in the Loire Valley, the Salvard 'Unique' Sauvignon Blanc is an outstandingly delicious, and a reminder of how good Loire Valley whites can be.
The vintage threw up some tricky conditions - devastating frost and hail, and this dramatically reduced yields. The fruit that was picked however has been used to craft and impressively intense wine, characterised by the mouth-watering tension between concentrated silky fruit and strong acidity.
Aromas of snow pea, crisp green herbs, guava and gooseberry are backed up by a dry, chalky palate that has a long trail of flavour.
