Kyoto is a city in the central part of the Honshu, Japan, surrounded by different prefectures in Japan. Kyoto has four notable seasons divided into summer, fall, winter and spring. Weather brings in very hot summers and cold winters. Rain comes by particularly around June and July.  

Kyoto takes pride in Iwai rice where some of the finest sakes are made from. Iwai rice is only sold for the purpose of making sake. Some of the sakes found in the region are the wide variety of Junmai Ginjo and Junmai Daiginjo. Sakes in Kyoto are known for their bittersweet aromas and intense flavors. Fushimi is a place in Kyoto that is known for its large production of sake. There are about 25 sake breweries you can find in Fushimi. Similarly, Chushojima is another place in Kyoto that is famous for its sake production. At some point, Chushojima has been considered as Japan’s sake capitol.

Alain de la Treille Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Our Touraine Sauvignon blanc is crisp and refreshing, with rich, ripe lime and grapefruit aromas. Great elegance with mineral style and despite everything some kind of roundness.

Average age of the vines is 20 years old.

We produce a part of this cuvee with 12 hours skin maceration and another part from directly pressed grapes

Wine was slightly filtered before bottling to ensure wine will remain stable.

Ideal for the Aperitif , any cooked fish such as smoked and grilled salmon but also obviously with a Goat Cheese.
