Auxerrois Wine Details

Description: A lovely wine, made from Alsacian variety Auxerrois, sur lie aged, 20% barrel fermented. Fruit flavors, with apple and lemony aromas smooth and clean on the palate with subtle hints of oak. A delicious dry white wine. Fabulous with grilled salmon.

Varietal Definition
French local name for the Malbec, aka Cot red wine grape species grown in the Cahors region of France and also, confusingly, an important white wine grape in the Alsace region called the Auxerrois Blanc that is distinct from another locally grown white wine grape called the Auxerrois Gris that is actually the Pinot Gris varietal grape.
