L'Hyverniere Muscadet Sur Lie Size: 75cl
PRODUCER: A classic Muscadet sur Lie property, honouring the region’s winemaking traditions. This is a very unusual terroir; two parcels in particular are of extremely high quality: ‘la Grande Garenne’ where rocky outcrops give the wine its sought-after smoky flavour and ‘le Bois de l’Hyverniere’ where the soil is lighter, adding a note of elegance. Vineyards are planted to a single varietal, Melon de Bourgogne. This lynchpin of the Muscadet appellations exists only in France, and owes its name to the rounded shape of its leaves.
TASTING NOTES: Produced from the unique terroir that has a granite base the characteristic pale green colour compliments a complex and intense nose. Its long finish is dominated by white flower fragrances. To be enjoyed with shellfish, seafood and fish.
