A Wine That
is like a house of mirrors—thought you knew Sauvignon, or even - did you think you weren't a fan of Sauvignon? Think again. This shows you the other side to the grape—think smokiness, wildflower honey and a lick of salt. An addictive bottle—one sip is never enough.

Where and How?
Skeveldra: “A fragment of Stones” — this is Sauvignon Blanc from 50-year-old vines in St Satur, from the iconic silex soils of the region. Picked with 50% Botrytis affected grapes. After pressing, grapes are aged for two years in cuves, then an extra year in large old foudres before bottling. Unfined, unfiltered and without added sulphites.
The Winemaker: Sebastien Riffault
Sébastien Riffault is one of those rare people who aren't afraid of going completely against the grain. In a region that's known for its strict, technologically-made wines, Sébastien decided that wouldn't work for him. Having been inspired by tasting natural wines, early on he ditched the sulphites, switched to biodynamic farming and decided to embrace riper fruit. The results are deep and soulful expressions of Sauvignon.
