Handpicked grapes in small 10kg cases from the estate blocks.
Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon
Alcohol content: 13,3 %
80% of the wine was fermented in small, 25hl and 6hl tanks. 20% of the wine was fermented in new French oak barrels with some lees stirring during ageing. This wine was aged in bottle for at least 5 months.
Visual: Light green olive
Nose: Mineral notes, fresh chamomile, vanilla and some undergrowth.
Palate: Spice with a well integrated acidity. Long aftertaste, with a variety of fruit notes.
This wine will develop its complexity in bottle. Thanks to the acidity, it will be an important ageing if it is conserved in good conditions.
