Production

Grapes were hand harvested in late September, whole bunch pressed and fermented in stainless steel with 4-6 weeks of lees stirring. The wine was aged in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks on its lees for 6 months and is completely unoaked.

Tasting notes

Delicate, aromatic nose and nicely herbaceous with ripe fleshy fruit on the palate. It has a good linear structure with a gentle complexity and mineral freshness on the finish. The high proportion of Sémillon means that the wine will also benefit from some bottle ageing.

Food match

Whole sea bream, cooked on the barbecue and served with homemade mayonnaise and a tomato salad.
