Domaine Tariquet - Sauvignon Blanc Côtes de Gascogne 2020

Overview

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.
