CHTEAU DE FONTENILLE ENTRE-DEUX-MERS 2008 CHÂTEAU DE FONTENILLE ENTRE-DEUX-MERS 2008

If you need convincing of the revolution underway in Bordeaux winemaking, this wine should do it. Outstandingly good value, this Sauvignon based wine comes from the Entre-deux-mers region east of Bordeauxit is a full bodied dry white with beautifully clean fruit flavours. Weightier than a New Zealand sauvignon - a very good match with foods such as fish and lighter white meat dishes.

VINEYARD
The gravel/clay, free-draining soils of the Fontenille vineyards and the high winds that keep the grapes healthy contribute to some of the purest wines that Bordeaux can produce. The vineyards are situated at an altitude of 110 meters above sea level in the Entre-Deux-Mers region between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers.

GRAPE VARIETIES
35% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Muscadelle, 25% Semillon, 15% Sauvignon Gris

VINIFICATION
A short pre-fermentation maceration took place for 10-24 hours to maximise flavour extraction from the skins. Fermentation followed at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. The wine was left in contact with its fine lees to give extra body and complexity to the blend.

TASTING NOTE
Pale lemon in colour with green tints this wine is fresh and vibrant on the nose with aromas of fresh citrus fruits and some grassy notes. On the palate it is light with plenty of fruit character and a refreshing acidity on the finish.
