Our Touraine Sauvignon blanc is crisp and refreshing, with rich, ripe lime and grapefruit aromas. Great elegance with mineral style and despite everything some kind of roundness.

"A creamy textured white with sliced apple and hints of grapefruit that follow through to a medium body and a crisp finish. Tangy and fresh. Screw cap. Drink now."

"Another terrific value brought in by Kysela is the 2017 Touraine Sauvignon Blanc, which saw a little bit of skin maceration and six months on lees in tank. Beautiful lime, mint, and flinty minerality all emerge from this medium-bodied, vibrant, pure white that offers plenty of character. It leans toward the racy end of the spectrum yet has good texture. Drink it over the coming year or two.”
