Château de Montfort
100% Chenin Blanc
Château de Montfort is a stunning estate located on the limestone plateau above the Loire River in the Touraine region. This historic property consists of 75 acres of premium quality land throughout the Vouvray AOC and Touraine AOC. The estate is somewhat unique in that most of its vines are located surrounding the winemaking facility in one large parcel. Average vine age is over 50 years, limiting yields and providing great concentration and depth in the wine. Château de Montfort is most famous for its demi-sec Vouvray.WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES
The gentle hills of Vouvray have stony slopes and valleys that have flinty-clay and limestone soils. The must is slowly pressed and selected during the pressing phase. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks with temperature control during almost 8 weeks. Fermentation is stopped to keep around 25g/L of residual sugar.TASTING NOTES
Pale green-gold color with aromas of Granny Smith apples with a hint of minerality. Refreshing demi-sec style with great fruit and intense, lively acidity. Pairs well with all fish dishes, especially those with cream or mushroom sauces, chicken, veal or pork. Also lovely with salads or on its own as an aperitif.
