50% Sauvignon Blanc, 50% Semillon, fermented and aged in oak - same way as Grand Cru Classes of Grave and Pessac-Leognan. Semillon is the principal grape which brings the lushness of tropical fruits to the more tangy Sauvignon.
Beautiful pale yellow with greenish tints. Pleasant front-of-palate marked by fresh, powerful citrus and mango aromas. Hints of vanilla and blackcurrant buds emerge after swirling. The same aromatic array is found on the palate, enhanced by lingering balance and volume. A great Bordeaux white!
Enjoy it young after 2015 over an informal meal.
Varietal: 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 50% Semilion
60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Fermented in vat to extrat colour and tannins, followed by 15-21 days of vatting time to develop characteristic Bordeaux structure and ageing potential. Partial Carbonic Maceration to maximize the fruits, then blended after vatting. Final 12 months ageing in French Barriques.
Deep ruby colour. Expressive and intense aromas of ripe blackcurrant, mild spice with an elegant touch of vanilla and toast. Succulent freshness on a palate which is both balanced and mouthfillingly aromatic – this is a wine with huge personality. Crisp-textured, lingering finish.
Pair with grilled meat, bean dishes with smoked ham or chorizo or medium hard cheese.
