Villiera Down to Earth White 2010

We have remained true to the original philosophy by continuing nature’s work and by ensuring reliability and value. We are excited by the wine which focuses on drinkability, but keeps you interested due to its complexity. The concept was to create a wine that can be enjoyed by all on any occasion, with packaging designed to grace any table.

in the vineyard : The 2010 Down to Earth White was influenced by a wet, cold winter followed by a windy and wet Spring. The harvest was warm allowing optimum ripeness and intense flavours.

in the cellar : This Down to Earth White demonstrates the art of blending. It was created by drawing on years of experience with blending Sauvignon Blanc. To improve complexity we required an additional component and Semillon was the obvious choice. After careful attention to blending these components we achieved the required result, with fresh gooseberries and passion fruit from the Sauvignon Blanc. The Semillon contributes the more herbaceous, grassy character as well as complexity to the palate.The wine is balanced with good length, but above all it makes you reach for another glass.

In the production process we limited the use of additives and avoided all animal products resulting in a wine that is suitable for vegetarians.
