Another uncompromising Sauvignon cuvee from Sebastien Riffault. Auksinis, meaning "late" in Lithuanian, describes the time that the grapes are harvested in the season as Sebastien leaves them on the vine extremely late usually until botrytis occurs adding more depth to an already powerful expression.'

Sebastien Riffault

Sébastien Riffault produces a kind of Sancerre that bears little resemblance to the wines most produce in that appellation today. He often harvests with a large percentage of botrytis and is not afraid of oxygen or time on skins. The resulting wines are complex, nigh kaleidoscopic expressions of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir that really resonate.
