Les Cailloux du Paradis' 100% Touraine Sauvignon Blanc.
Quartz is vinified in barrel & aged for 12-24 months in oak. Golden straw in the glass with shimmering pale highlights. The nose offers sliced apple & poached pear backed by apple chutney spiced with brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon & allspice. The palate is very nutty, with a firm acidity. The wine finishes long & vibrant, with great mineral & core fruit presence & a lingering inner mouth perfume of pear eau de vie.
It drinks well in its youth, though decanting is highly recommended, & the wine can age for a decade if not more.
