MISTER L Sauvignon Blanc

VDP du Val de Loire, France

Made only in exceptional vintages, from our very best Sauvignon Blanc field. Barrel fermented for 9 months in new French oak. Hand waxed and stamped, this wine is a culmination of a dream David Levin had twenty-six years ago.

Nose: Unique in style, with rich, exotic fruit aromas of mango, apricot and nectarine, hints of coconut and vanilla, with some wild mint.

Palate: Long and rich showing the exotic fruits along with grapefruit and citrus characters, all underpinned by a characteristic minerality and fresh acid balance.

LEVIN Noble Sauvignon Blanc

VDP du Val de Loire, France

Appearance: Clear, bright with pale lemon reflections.

Nose: Our Botrytis Sauvignon Blanc has refreshingly lifted aromas of honeysuckle and elderflower with subtle notes of apricot.

Palate: Flavours follow through to the palate in the citrus spectrum with hints of anise, apple blossom and lotus combining with notes of honeysuckle and elderflower. The palate is underpinned by textural minerality, lovely length and acidity that belies its residual sugar!
