Just half the number of bottles due to a pesky Spring frost in 2017 but a thoroughly delicious dry white. €9 per bottle.
Back label: ’A late Spring frost reduced our crop but the small September harvest of 92% Sauvignon Blanc and 8% Sémillon was of super quality. This delicious, estate-grown dry white has been the house wine for Gordon Ramsay and Rick Stein for 15+ years.’ 12.5% alc.
Due to the late spring frost last April, we only made half the amount of white as the year before.
The quality, however, is right up there with our best years and we are giving customers the chance to buy this wine at the same price as the previous vintage - for a limited time.
Recent reviews of the 2016 vintage:
“This scrumptious Sauvignon is packed with refined nettle and lemon grass zing”

“A crisp, unoaked white. Unlike the wines of Marlborough, Bordeaux sauvignon blanc has gentlemanly understatement. Think unripe nectarines.”

“The classic unoaked Bordeaux white… a fresh, understated and extremely juicy white wine that matches well with food. This is a classic Sauvignon Blanc that has been the house wine for the Hotel du Vin, Gordon Ramsay and Rick Stein for many years."
