Sauvignon Blanc Côtes de Gascogne 2018

Domaine Tariquet


Terroir: With concerns about protecting the environment, Domaine Tariquet has been sustainably managing the vineyards for over 20 years. The estate is certified ISO 14001 and HVE (High Environment Value).

Vinification: Domaine Tariquet uses a sustainable method of growing and only uses natural fertilizers. Destemming of the grapes occurs during harvest, mechanically. Grapes are then transported in air-tight tanks to the facility. The grapes go through maceration with skin-contact for 8-12 hours into temperature-controlled pneumatic presses. The freshly pressed juices are matured on fine lees at a low, cool temperature. The wine is kept in cold storage until bottling in tanks at -2°C (28.4°F) to preserve the wines’ freshness. Bottling only occurs upon order to ensure optimal fruitiness and crispness all year long.

Additional Information

A fresh insight into a well-known variety that gains a whole new range of flavours under the clement Gascony skies. A familiar bouquet of fine, intense floral notes with mineral nuances, followed by a dominant sensation of ripe grapes. Good intensity leading into an abundance of finesse and freshness. A truly delicious and pleasurable wine.
