Still drinking well, this won Gold Medal at the Concours Général Agricole de Paris. This oaked Sauvignon/Seémillon blend is now great value for money.
Description

Details

Each year we select one parcel of the top quality Sauvignon Blanc grapes to be vinified to make this top cuvée of white wine. These grapes are left on the vine to ripen for a few more days after the normal white wine harvest and then they are carefully picked by hand.

The grapes go straight to the winery, where after several hours skin maturation, they are carefully pressed. The juice is left to settle and then run into new oak casks to ferment. After fermentation, the wine is stirred from time to time over a period of several months to increase the complexity. It is bottled the following March.

The vanilla oak flavours and rich fruit of this more structured, fuller flavoured, dry, white wine need time to marry together. This is a wine which benefits from at least a year in bottle.

Priced per case of 12 bottles.
