The Oddbins Take

Usually, with white wine, the grapes are whisked off the skins before fermentation, which otherwise start imparting tannins and whatnot (that's a technical term), more appropriate for red wines. However! Some vintners, like Thierry Delauney in the Loire Valley, opt to leave the skins in the mix for part of the fermentation.


Why do we sound so excited about this? Because it can lead to incredibly exciting, supple, textured wines such as La Vouté. It is rare for Sauvignon to be so fulsome and golden, but that it is, with glorious flavours of exotic fruits, citronella and white flowers.
