Tursan AOC 2020 Blanc, La Cave des Vignerons Landais
"So pleased to fine a Tursan in the UK. Have only ever had this in France previously. Didn't disappoint."
"Went very well with sushi and on its own."
The Tursan blanc is made with the Baroque grape - which is grown almost nowhere else. It adds body and character to this distinctive wine - which has a flavour all if its own. The grapes are grown in small individual plots and harvested at night, before a little skin contact then fermentation at low temperature to preserve every ounce of freshness in the wine.
Made by a group of farmers in the Landais who are doing extraordinary work to bring indigenous grape varieties to life with complete commitment to protecting and preserving their environment. The vineyards host a wealth of flora and fauna including wild orchids, birds and deer.
A lively blend delivering a verbena, citrus nose, a really fresh attack and plenty of crisp fruit flavours. Pairs well with spices.
