FAT bastard Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from Côtes de Gascogne in southwestern France, a zone well suited for growing this varietal. Careful attention in vineyard management and winemaking ensure the fruit-driven aromas and flavors of the final wine.

Wine Production

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are harvested at the coolest hours of the day to keep the freshness of the fruit. They pass through the crusher-destemmer where they undergo a short period of maceration in order to enhance the fruit character of the wine. The grapes are then gently pressed and fermented with selected yeasts at a low controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. To maintain vibrant acidity, malolactic fermentation is not carried out and the wine is left on the lees, creating a final product with a fuller body.

Tasting Notes

A brilliant lemon yellow color with green reflections. Enticing grapefruit, lemon grass and floral aromas intermingle on the nose while the palate displays fresh exotic fruit aromas and a pronounced, crisp acidity followed by a long, persistent finish.

Food Pairing

This Sauvignon Blanc stands excellent on its own and pairs well with seafood including shrimp and sushi or leaner meats such as oven roasted chicken with fresh basil and lemon.
