Domaine L'Austral - Saumur Blanc "Octopus" 2022
In the heart of Puy-Notre-Dame, Saumur, L’Austral has brought a new perspective with Australian influence to Loire Valley wines. The vines of the Amandiers parcel were planted in 1990. In 2016, the chance to start their own domaine occured through the lovely Françoise & Philippe Gourdon of Château Tour Grise, who allowed them to lease out and take over 4 ha of vines that have been grown biodynamically for 20 years. A blend of grapes from 35 year old vines.
Very good success for this chenin bursting with purity and great digestibility. A remarkable balance between roundness and straightness induced by a nice final bitterness! 100% Chenin Blanc.
