PASSPORT SERIES™ 2020
Union White- Provence France
JANUARY 2020 RELEASE
A classic French blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon create the crisp and medium body Union White. Expect aromas and flavours of citrus,
gooseberry, and pear with faint herbaceous and mineral notes. Union White has bright acidity, bold aromatics and flavours with a clean finish.
Provence is the oldest wine producing region in France with over 2600 years of grape growing experience. The region borders Italy and the Mediterranean Sea and is known for its diverse landscapes from the Southern Alps to the rolling vineyards and olive groves. Wild rosemary, juniper, thyme and lavender grow all over the region which create character in the wines. The region is graced with a Mediterranean climate of warm days and cool nights and a diverse mix of terroir.
Sip this wine alongside shellfish such as oysters and mussels, or white fish like cod or halibut (with butter, caper and lemon sauces). A fresh arugula salad with a lemon parmesan dressing, goat cheese appetizers, tabbouleh, or asparagus risotto would also pair well. Key food flavours that enhance this wine are basil, parsley and citrus.
