Bordeaux-style wines are celebrated throughout the world and our Lumiére de Vie (Fr: Light of Life) wines give you this famed style of winemaking with a modern edge. The Bordeaux region of France has created some of the most famous varietals in the world — Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. Our Lumiére de Vie wines are carefully crafted to balance the Bordeaux-style of winemaking with modern finesse and a thoroughly fresh perspective. Raise your glass to the light of life!
This white blend is a combination of Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat. The grapes were whole cluster pressed and the juice was fermented cold to preserve the delicate aromas. This wine is made in a lightly sweet style with around 0.7% residual sugar. This wine was aged entirely in stainless steel tanks. The wine has not undergone malo-lactic fermentation in an effort to preserve the crispness. This wine should be consumed within 2 years of release.
This 2008 Lumiére de Vie Mélange Blanc has aromas of ripe apple and pear with hints of flowers and fresh mint. The flavors are only lightly sweet with a balanced crisp finish. The mouth-feel is medium to heavy for a white wine but the flavors are balanced. Enjoy this wine with a fruit appetizer, seafood salads, Havarti cheese or a tomato bisque soup.
