Château-Smith-Haut-Lafitte Les Hauts de Smith Blanc 2016
The château overlooks the vines from atop a hill (or “la fitte” in local dialect) composed of river stones and semi-precious pebbles deposited by the Garonne millions of years ago.
The 2016 Les Hauts de Smith Blanc is pure Sauvignon Blanc matured in around 50% new oak. It has a pleasant bouquet with yellow flower aromas complementing the citrus fruit. The palate is well balanced with some lovely tropical tones on the entry, dried pineapple, paw paw and then later a touch of lemongrass.
