Les Hauts de Bel Air Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Bordeaux, France

Crisp, understated Bordeaux blanc that shows muted aromas and flavours of grapefruit, white peach, green apple and lychee, supported by a tangy, steely core and thirst-quenching acidity. Juicy, rich texture - a really lovely white.

Delicious aperitif, summer party white or accompaniment for and grilled fish and salad.

This varietal (100%) Sauvignon is made in the modern style, meaning that it is handled carefully at every stage of winemaking (pneumatic press), fermented at cool temperatures (to maximise fruity flavours), using cultured yeasts (to enhance varietal aromas), and protected from damaging oxygen. Much of today's white Bordeaux is made this way, the other style being pricier, richer, barrel-fermented Sémillon-Sauvignon blends.

Producer Sichel is a Bordeaux wine négociant (broker) that 40 years ago broke the typical négociant mould when it bought vineyards, a winery and cellars so that it could totally control the quality of its products at every stage from vine to bottle.
