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.
The Perrin family work closely with growers in the Parc Régional de
Luberon, located in the south-east of the Rhône Valley, to source
the grapes for the Luberon Blanc. The vines are planted on a
mixture of limestone marl soils and round pebbles at an average
altitude of 300 metres. The stony soils retain the daytime heat,
helping the grapes to ripen slowly, while the altitude helps to
ensure optimal freshness in the finished wine.
The grapes were carefully pressed using a pneumatic press. After
the must had settled, fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the aromatic fruit
flavours and freshness. After fermentation, the wine was kept in
stainless steel vats until bottling.
Pale lemon in colour, this wine has delicate notes of white flowers
and citrus fruit on the nose. The palate is well-balanced with a
racy acidity that perfectly complements the stone fruit and saline
flavours, which linger on the finish.
