Le Coeur de la Reine Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2018

These vines average 30 years in age and are meticulously tended by the
family. Short-cane pruning, selective ploughing, spring de-budding, deleafing, grass cover throughout the vineyard and green harvest practices all lend to limited yields and best quality fruit at harvest.
