Product Description

The resilience of Chenin Blanc that gives Vouvray wines their fundamental character and elegance.  Voltaire Vouvray is full of personality, eliciting a fruity aroma with complex characteristics of white fruits, flinty minerality and a hint of sweet melon.  There is a very fine balance between the sweet nature of the grape and the acidity that brings forth beautiful flavors of white nectarines, peach, and a hint of citrus fruits. Pair with fish dishes, white meat, poultry, sweet and savory sauces and is ideal with spicy exotic dishes such as Thai or North African.
