Sauvignon Blanc Vieux Chêne

This is a wonderful seafood and light pasta wine. Made using Old-World techniques from Sancerre that Norm learned on a 10-day intensive trip during the 2017 Sancerre harvest. A beautiful expression of the limestone and clay terroir we have here in Southern Ontario. Think Sancerre, not New Zealand.
This is not a typical Sauvignon Blanc! 8 months ageing on its fine lees in old 500L French Oak barrels have imparted a slight golden hue and a buttery almond perfume to the lively core of gooseberry, lime zest and fresh picked pea pod. The real heart of the wine is its firm, flinty core of minerality. This Sauvignon Blanc calls out for fresh local pickerel or perch!
