Sébastien Riffault Akménine Sancerre, Biodynamic wine, Unfined & Unfiltered, No added Sulphur Wine. From low yielding vines, slightly smoky, with a crisp creamy texture. Defined by Sebastien as his “Orange Wine” the wine has a short skin maceration. A wine of serious depth and complexity, it is untouched so no finings, clarification, sulphites etc, this means a wild side to the wine but all in a good way. Full of character and texture in the mouth, it would suit strong terrines with pickles, aged goats cheeses and hearty soups with beans and lots of herbs. A natural wine lovers Sancerre for sure.
