The Holy Snail Sauvignon Blanc is an expressive white wine, with aromas of grapefruit and lime jumping out of the glass, with a hint of something a bit tropical. The palate too is fresh and crisp, but is just a little bit riper than some other Sauvignon's in the area, making it a very approachable and enjoyable glass of wine. Give this a try if you're a fan of NZSB and fancy branching out just a tad.
The Holy Snail Sauvignon Blanc is blended from fine cuvées of Sauvignon Blanc from across the Touraine region of the Loire Valley. TYDY stands for Thierry Delaunay, the fifth-generation owner of Domaine Joël Delaunay. A specialist in the Loire, Thierry sources the fruit for his wines from across the valley, some of which he buys from long-standing grower friends and colleagues.
As IGP Val de Loire, this wine offers excellent value. Fermented in stainless-steel temperature-controlled tanks and bottled for drinking immediately. 100% Sauvignon Blanc, with aromas of gooseberry and pear, it is crisp and balanced with a roundness on the finish.
