Sylvaner is a dry, fresh, fruity, lively wine with very good body and personality. The grapes are sourced entirely from the Domaine’s estate vineyard, Clos de Capuchins. Comes from land composed of sandy silt soil on granite pebbles. The grapes growing in this terroir ripen much earlier, producing wines with complex aromatics and a powerful concentration. Hand-picked at optimum maturity to reinforce the aromatic expression and body of the wines. Gently pressed in whole clusters in pneumatic presses then fermentation with indigenous yeasts (an element of the terroir that enhances depth and complexity in the wines) in old oak vats.
Tasting Notes: Herbal aromas of freshly mown grass and alum stone. Crisp, well structured, full-bodied, and perfectly balanced thanks to a juicy character and a ripe acidity. Very nice harmony and pure finish brought by a mineral freshness.
Food Pairing: A vivid wine to pair harmoniously with vegetable starters and summer dishes. Also a pleasure to serve with mild cheeses, cured meats, and fish-based dishes.
