Vouvray Sec « Clos du Portail », Domaine Champalou, Loire Valley, France 2012Get your hands on this wine while you can. Clos du Portail is made from a small parcel of land next to the winery, so only around 300 cases are produced and demand is high.
Grapes are manually harvested for this very special cuvee which has a lovely, light gold colour, dried fruit flavours and some mineral and slightly toasty notes from its 12 months in oak. The finish is dry and very long. We love it with seafood, but it will match perfectly with white meats too.
