VOUVRAY “Silex”

Quantity:

24.00

Real expression of an exceptional local soil in Vouvray vineyards, this wine comes from old vines on a hill-side  with South exposure, where large flint stones cover massively clay and limestone. This situation, specific to our vineyard, gives our wines an unmistakable characteristic : the famous “flinty taste”.

The grapes are pressed for 2 to 3 hours. After decanted, the juice is put for two third in tanks and the rest in oak barrels with 25 % of new wood. The spontaneous fermentation is followed by an ageing, stirring of the lees in barrels. His done during 11 months. The wine is bottled in September, after being racked two or three times and finely filtered.
