Côtes du Roussillon Blanc, Bastide Sobirana Vue sur Mer, Domaine Lafage

A blend of aromatic grape varieties: 50% Muscat, 20% Vermentino, 15% Viognier and 15% Sauvignon Blanc; all grown from maritime terroirs and from vineyards with rocky and alluvial soils. The grapes are harvest in parcels over a two month period, starting at the end of August, and each is fermented separately. The grapes undergo a 24 hour pre-ferment maceration, prior to racking and a cool fermentation; a third of the Viognier is fermented and aged in concrete tanks. The wine is aged on its fine lees for about five months. Bright, light-gold in colour, it shows fresh and fruity notes of citrus, peach and honey, under an aromatic and blossom-filled nose.
