STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The all-conquering Sauvignon Blanc isn’t going anywhere just yet but it is refreshing to get a new take on it. That’s certainly what you get here. Sauvignon Gris is one of the lesser known grapes of Bordeaux and is characterised by adding a wonderful concentration of flavour to blend. La Gravette represents the 2nd white wine from the prestigious Château Couhins in the spiritual home of Bordeaux whites. Like many other Chateaux in the region, their 2nd wine are more than a match for many others first and will leave you seeking out their Grand Vin. Read more.
