2015 Le Chat Noir Aude Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This black cat savvy gives 'cats pee on a gooseberry bush' a whole new meaning. And whilst there is a delicate whiff of that character, there are plenty of other appealing smells along for the ride. Tropical fruits in the passionfruit and citrus spectrum come to the fore, along with Granny Smith apples and gooseberries. The palate is quite light, crisp and very citrusy, with flinty acidity, hits of grassiness, and a respectable dry finish. Give it a chill, and it will go down well with some tempura prawns.

Winemaker's Notes

The nose is fresh and crisp, displaying apple, grass and light tropical fruit. The palate is pure and bracing with lime, citrus and passionfruit flavours flowing to a slate and mineral influence finish. The quality of the vintage shines through in the wine’s delicate varietal expression and pristine acid backbone.

Alc/vol: 12.5%

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2012 Vintage) says
From the foothills of the French Pyrenees, south of the legendary walled city of Carcassonne, where the hills rise to an altitude of 400m, cooled by refreshing winds, this is an even and balanced sauvignon upheld by fine acid tone. Three months maturation on lees has built a softly textural mouth feel and apple cider-like yeast notes. Crunchy apple and grapefruit flavours linger with good persistence.
