Solicantus white 2019
From the picturesque region of the Entre-Deux-Mers, we bring to you Solicantus white. 'Soli' meaning soil & 'Cantus' meaning melody in latin. True to its word, the wine has the richness and abundance of a beautiful terroir that delivers in your glass, the most aromatic and fruit forward white wines of Bordeaux.
The wine is a blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle that come together harmoniously. Unoaked, our wines are preserved with freshness and vitality.
Try a sniff and we will walk you through a garden full of flowers, citrus and orchard fruits. On the palate the wine is crisp with beautiful acidity and minerality. It is light, easy drinking and deliciously fruity.
Grown on clay and limestone soils, our Sémillon vines are 40 years old, Sauvignon blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle are 18 years old. The vines were harvested early September and vinified in steel tanks.
Solicantus blanc can be appreciated alone as an aperitif or can be combined with most foods.

On the palate the wine is a poetry of peaches, apricots, pears, orange blossoms, honeysuckle, nectarine, green apples and citrus flavours that come together with a zingy acidity and steely minerality. Its time on lees renders the wine its buttery texture and its brioche characteristics come through harmoniously.
