Mont Gravet comes from vineyards located in the Gascony region, near the city of Toulouse in the South West of France. The climate combines the Oceanic and Mediterranean influences, which brings enough sun and humidity to grow rich, concentrated and ripe grapes. Close to the producers, and in order to source the best vineyards, the winemaker has found some amazing “terroirs” spread on hills. These hills are called “Mont” in French. So as a tribute to the terroir from where the wine comes from we have named in Mont Gravet, “Gravet” being the name of an oval shaped rock commonly found in the area.
Mont Gravet has a pale, bright golden straw color, with a very intense and refreshing nose of citrus fruit, light honey and floral aromas. It displays flavors of citrus fruit, grapefruit, and a really bright crisp acidity. This wine is very clean and refreshing, a real joy to drink. This wine is a really great inexpensive bargain at around $10, a great candidate for an “everyday” white wine. Look for this wine at The Wine Shop, Hamilton Liquors, East Brainerd Wine & Spirits, Vintage Wine & Spirits and Vine & Barrel.
