Pale yellow in colour with green tints. An expressive nose, marrying grapefruit, gooseberry, pear, fresh lime and a subtle touch of tropical fruit. These bright fruits continue onto the palate, which is round, fleshy and framed by a delicate touch of sweetness. A soft and perfumed Sauvignon Blanc.

TYDY Sauvignon Blanc is blended from fine cuvées of Sauvignon Blanc from across the Touraine region of the Loire Valley. A portion of the grapes are bought in from long-standing growers, carefully selected by Thierry Delaunay.
The Loire Valley was plagued by spring frosts and a wet summer, causing a severe reduction in yields and making the vineyard owners work hard to manage their canopies and deter fungal growth.
After pneumatic pressing, alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks over a period of 20 days at 16°C. After fermentation, the wine was aged on fine lees prior to blending by Thierry Delaunay before cross flow filtration and bottling.
TYDY stands for Thierry Delaunay, the fifth-generation owner of Domaine Joël Delaunay. It is made from Sauvignon Blanc grown in the Touraine region. Holy Snail is another label. Both are IGP Valle de la Loire, so offer great value.
