Domaine Castera Jurancon Sec Jurancon France 2018Regular price $16.00
A small quantity of Petit Manseng (approximately 5%) is added to Gros Manseng to make the Jurancon Sec. The grapes are harvested in mid October and fermented in small stainless steel tanks allowing different parcels to be fermented separately. The fermentation tanks are kept at a low temperature prolonging the process and preserving the intense fruit qualities of the grapes. The wines rest “sur lie” until the following spring when the wines are assembled and bottles.
Earth of clay and stone is present on the nose and palate with notes of apricot and honeysuckle balanced by anise, earth, clay, and lemon citrus. Lush and dry, this wine is versatile with food.
Food ideas: Caramelized onion and goat cheese tartlets, duck rillette, turkey with all the fixings
