Sauvignon des Gabares

Touraine Sauvignon

Our Gabare (Scow) story:

By the Loire, as Gabare boats sail on Europe’s last wild river, naturally carried by the winds and the currents, organic vineyards make use of nature too. The winemakers take particular care when working the soil, their know-how is reserved for minimal intervention with the vines. All their efforts are focused on monitoring and anticipating natural processes. The grape quality is the key to the wine. In vats, as on the vine, nature is allowed to express itself.


The vineyard:

Appellation: Touraine Sauvignon AOC
Size: 8 ha
Grape variety: Sauvignon

The soil:

Wine making:

Fermentation takes place naturally (without yeast additives) at a temperature regulated at 18°C. There follows a 4-month maturing process in vats on lees, with regular stirring.
ABV: 12.5°
