Appellation: Vouvray A.C., Touraine, Loire, France
Dry Vouvray comes from clay-limestone plots with a high density of flint stones. This soil produces fast-maturing wines. The grapes are pressed for 2 to 3 hours. Then decanted, the unfermented wine is put in oak barrels for spontaneous fermentation with temperature control. The wine is bottled in the spring after being racked two or three times and finely filtered.
