Mont Gravet white, which is made from the Colombard grape, comes from vineyards located in the Gascony region, near the city of Toulouse in the South West of France. The wine is dry, crisp and fruity.

Winemaking

Harvested at night, the grapes undergo a modern winemaking process. After 24 hours of skin contact at 43°F, only the premium juices are fermented at low temperature. The intense fruit aromas come from the specific method used to extract all of the fruit flavors from the lees. For 40 days the juice is kept at a 32°F temperature then the extracted clear juice contains all of the fruit specs of the grapes. The resulting wine is matured on its fine lies at 28°F until bottling.

Alcohol: 11.9%
