Sensual Sauvignon Blanc from one of the Loires most noteable estates
Pale yellow with green-tinged flecks. An intense tropical nose of mango, passionfruit, clementine and wild flowers. Develops beautifully in the glass with expressive flavours of orange-citrus, kiwi and lime struck through with some peppermint and a flinty minerality. Full-bodied and smoothly textured with an impressive, mouth-watering acidity on the finish.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
While many wine lovers are familiar with the Loire, there is still good reason to believe that the region is under appreciated. Certainly the quality to price ratio here is second to none. This offering from Château de Tracy is a case in point. Run by the same family since the 14th Century, it is a standout Château in the region. We’ve no hesitation in telling you that this wine is considered a benchmark not just for the Loire, but for anywhere that does the grape. Sauvignon Blanc may be ubiquitous but few reach these rarefied heights
