Luberon Blanc, Famille Perrin, Southern Rhône, France, 2021

£16

Famille Perrin is one of the most recognisable names in the Southern Rhône. The fifth and sixth generations of the family now manage the extensive vineyard holdings and grower partnerships which stretch across the region, from Vinsobres to the Ventoux. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were pressed using a pneumatic press. After the must had settled, fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. After fermentation, the wines were kept in stainless-steel vats until bottling. After an early bud burst in April, flowering was gradual with good conditions across all vineyards. Summer was hot, with high temperatures in June. Good water reserves and spraying in the vineyards meant the vines did not suffer hydric stress. The grapes were harvested as usual during September.To achieve optimal freshness, the Perrin family source the grapes for the Luberon Rosé and the Luberon Blanc from growers with whom they work closely within the Parc Régional de Luberon in the south-east of the Rhône Valley. The vines are planted on a mixture of limestone marl soils and round pebbles at average altitude of 300m. The stony soils retain the daytime heat, helping the grapes to ripen slowly, while the situation at altitude ensures great freshness in the finished wine.

Food pairing: avocado and shrimp with mayonnaise, scallops, cold lobster.

This wine has delicate notes of white flowers and citrus fruit on the nose. The palate is well-balanced with racy acidity perfectly complimenting the stone fruit and saline flavours, which linger on the finish. 30% Bourboulenc , 30% Grenache Blanc, 30% Ugni Blanc, 10% Roussanne .
