Purveyors of fine grape juice
2013 La Sorga Sorga Blanc languedoc rousillon, france
$45

Quixotic winemaker Antony Tortul sources mauzac jaune (80%) and sauvignon blanc (20%) from clay and limestones soils in the upper reaches of Limoux.
It’s pressed to tank, left to sit on lees for a year before bottling. It’s pretty straight forward, albeit hands off, winemaking for a wine from this producer. No sulphur is added to this wine. Bit of a tribute to the traditions of Limoux, using the native variety mauzac blanc – so many have rejected it as a legitimate grape. Brings vitality and texture to this wine. For real.
Smells like sweet pastries, preserved lemons, green apples. Juicy, vibrant, imbued with zingy acidity. It’s all grapefruit juice and green appley to taste, concentrated, then long in flavour and shuddering with vibrancy through a finish. Brisk closure, mouthwatering, wickedly drinkable and curious nuttiness through the wine to boot. Yes! Killer. Ready for summer. Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
