Winemaking - The Morin family have been winemakers for four generations. Based in the heart of the Layon hillsides, they produce a dozen wines from three main sites. They modestly put their success down to the sheer generosity of the soils around Anjou, but they certainly know how to make the most of them. By front-loading the process basically doing much of the winemaking process in the fields and then taking their time where possible when fermenting, they create wines that are both expressive and sophisticated.
What it tastes like - This is such a cracking little Val de Loire Sauvignon Blanc. Great value for money. It is crisp, just enough of that Loire valley grassiness but without thinking you’re walking behind a lawnmower and plenty of appealing fruit. Crisp, zesty and classically herbaceous, drink nicely chilled with fish & chips, fresh seafood or goat's cheese salad.
Dietary – None
ABV – 12%
