A Classic French Sauvigon Blanc
Le Hameau 'Charentes' Sauvignon Blanc is from Charentes, where viticulture dates back to Roman times. The town of Cognac and the many ports along the Charente river became centres of the local wine trade. Le Hameau means a Hamlet, or small village, reflecting the fact that the grapes for this wine come from several independent growers clustered around a group of small villages. The real winemaking skill lies in selecting each parcel of grapes, all of which have slightly different characteristics, and blending them into a wine that has several 'layers' of flavour.
This has resulted in a classic French Sauvignon Blanc; fresh, clean and crisp with a steely, flinty backbone. Its fresh cut grass aromas make it ideal served chilled on its own as an aperitif or with grilled fish, prawns or goat cheese dishes.
